MP to face off against son in 2017 elections

02 February 2015, 19:29 Philomenah Chebet

Bungoma - Residents of Mt Elgon Constituency, Bungoma County are staring at exciting times in the coming general elections, after the son of the current MP, John Serut, announced that he will gun for the seat.

Ndiema Serut  Kiano, who is also the Bungoma County Executive Secretary of the Union of Kenya Civil Servants (UKCS), announced on Saturday that he will compete against his father in the 2017 elections.

Speaking to journalists in Kimilili over the weekend, Kiano said he has decided to go for the Mt Elgon parliamentary seat after being pressurised by members of the public, whom he noted hunger for good leadership.

“I have decided to go for the national assembly position due to public demand. Our people are tired of mediocre leadership,” said Kiano.

“I ask all the residents who want change to accord me their support and even pray hard for my success so that I redeem the constituency from bondage once I get elected. Our people must get development,” added the unionist.

It will be interesting to see how the incumbent MP whose popularity saw him being elected as an independent candidate in the last polls will react, to his son’s ambition to dethrone him from his seat.

Residents who spoke to News24 however dismissed the younger Serut’s quest for the parliamentary seat, noting that he is acting out of hunger after falling out with his dad.

“He was recently sacked as the Mt Elgon Uwezo Fund Chairman, after wide uproar that he was bullying other committee members. He is not being genuine, he is  just bitter because he was relieved off his chairmanship,” said John Kibet, a local resident.
