13 September 2016, 20:04
Nairobi - Former Inspector General of police David Kimaiyo has said that he will be vying for an elective seat in the 2017 general elections.
Kimaiyo said that he was still consulting the electorate on which position to contest, with speculation rife that he will be seeking to unseat Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen.
"I am still consulting on which seat to vie for but all in all, I want to assure my supporters that my name will be in the ballot in the 2017 polls", he said.
The Inspector general also denied reports that he was vying for a parliamentary seat, saying that the wealth of experience that he had acquired from the police force had prepared him for duties of greater responsibilities.
"I have a lot of experience and thus will not go for a parliamentary seat. I will go for another position", he said.
