I am not an underling, youthful JAP nominee tells Ruto

28 January 2016, 08:04 Mohammed Yusuf

Kericho - Jubilee Alliance Party nominee for the Kericho senatorial seat, Aaron Cheruiyot has told off Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto and other leaders opposed to him.

Cheruiyot, 31, wants the leaders to conduct ‘clean’ campaigns without uttering insults. Ruto has allegedly referred to Cheruiyot as blood relative to one of the top officials in the jubilee government, claims Cheruiyot vehemently refuted.

The self-proclaimed millionaire says he is the best suited to replace former Kericho senator Charles Keter in the Senate. Keter quit senate following his appointment to the ministry of Energy and petroleum in the latest cabinet reshuffle, leaving the senate seat vacant.

Cheruiyot has challenged Isaac Ruto to fight his own battles with the government without involving other parties.

“I promised President Uhuru Kenyatta and the Deputy President that Jubilee would retain my seat in Kericho,” said Keter in his surety utterance that he will win in the March by-election.

Several Members such as the former Member of Parliament Franklin Bett, Magerer Langat as well as former National Housing Corporation Chairman Sammy Chepkwony were interested in the JAP ticket and remained bowed after Cheruiyot clinched the nomination.

Other members in the race are KANU’s Paul Sang who has proved a headache to the Jubilee candidate, National Vision Party (NVP) candidate Bishop Daniel Tanui and Wycliff Ngeno (MDP).
