Uasin Gishu County: Whispers from Correspondents

Kesses MP James Kimaru Bett is
being targeted by some of the MPs
from the Jubilee Alliance after he joined
Cord MPs in walking out of
Parliament to protest the motion
seeking to have Kenya withdraw from
the Rome Statute which establishes
the ICC. The first term MP has been
unable to explain to his party
colleagues that he did not walk out
in protest but walked out to answer
to an urgent call. The man could not convince his colleagues
and is now waiting with trepidation
for disciplinary measures to be taken
against him.

At the Hague, Kapseret MP Oscar
Sudy dozed off in the
courtroom public gallery despite
being on the front row, a few metres
from the judges. Sudy leaned on his
seat and dozed off forcing the
security guards to come and tap him
on the shoulder to wake him up. He
was the fourth on the front row after
Ruto’s wife Rachel, daughter June
and Kenya’s ambassador to
Netherlands Rose Makena. Several
MPs also had to be told to keep
quiet as they loudly chatted inside
the courtroom.

Former Eldorer South MP David Koros’s supporters have had a rough time brushing aside allegations that he is one of Bensouda’s witnesses at the Hague against Deputy President William Rutto and Joshua Arap Sang. This is after they failed to convince locals on why Koros has dissappeared since March when he lost the elections.

MCA’s Sworn in; County Speaker elected

The swearing in ceremony of the
elected County Representatives has just come to a conclusion at Eldoret’s Town Hall.

Earlier, parking spaces were
reserved and security reinforced as
the men and women who are
expected to lead the
transformation of what used to be
the Wareng Municipal Council into a
top-notch county prepared to
take the oath of office.

Tight security at the entrance to
Town Hall where Uasin Gishu
County Representatives were to be
sworn in.

The MCA’s later went into business,where they elected Advocate Isaac Terer to the coveted county speaker’s seat.

High Court Judge Fred Ochieng presided over the ceremony. Under the new system, the county will
be run by Governor-elect Jackson Mandago and the executive team he
will appoint after he is sworn in on
March 27.
County Governments, which will
take shape after the swearing in
ceremonies, are a major pillar of
Kenya’s new devolved system under
the new Constitution adopted in
August 2010.

When fully implemented, the
system will reform both the old
council and provincial
administration systems to give
more power to elected officials in
managing affairs at grassroots
level.

Kesses Constituency: Whispers From The Corridors of Power

There have been stories that leaders use the Magical powers of witchcraft but this has been unheard of in Kesses until now.It is sad that educated individuals who are seeking to lead the people of Kesses Constituency can think of using such unorthodox means to try get their way to power. Our ears on the ground have it that an aspirant who performed poorly in recent opinion polls has sought the services of an old man believed to be from the blood line of Koitalel Arap Samoei,the Nandi Orkoiyot. The old man is from the famous Kapsisiywo Village in Nandi District. It is said the aspirant,known for his jokes and wittyism,was bragging to constituents at a drinking joint that wether they vote for him or not he is going to be the next area MP. The aspirant had been questioned on why he was not campaigning instead preffering to spend most of his time in social places making small talk.

Last week supporters of a parliamentary candidate were treated to confusion in a meeting convened by the candidate. The meeting was marred with confusion as the people who had attended the meeting could not figure out wether it was a launch or a prayer meeting as it had been announced since no prayers were conducted.

Whispers has it that the spouse of a presidential candidate has since ceased funding an aspirant after realizing the said aspirant was not gaining any support on the ground. It’s said the aspirant is now trying to solicit funds from friends in Nairobi. The aspirant is said to have disappeared from his home as he can no longer manage to host his constituents.
