JAP candidate Aaron Cheruiyot who was among the runners vying for the senate seat in Kericho yesterday declared winner.
He was followed by his closest rival, Paul Sang, a member of KANU, of the Independence Party.
The elections which were accompanied by campaigns from political leaders of the respective parties, JAP and KANU, was a show of competition and power over who or which party had great political influence in Kericho.
The Deputy President William Ruto who was at the helm of the campaigns for Aaron Cheruiyot gave it his all to ensure that the party the seat and its popularity.
Isaac Ruto on the other hand was determined to prove to the Dp that the people were ready for change, but sadly all did not go as planned since JAP, a Party that is closely related to the DP and the reigning President took the victory.
It could have been frustrating and extremely humiliating for the DP if the results favored KANU’s running candidate Paul Sang.
The DP camped in Kericho for spirited campaigns to secure victory for Aaron Cheruiyot.
However, since elections in Kenya are mostly compromised, KANU’S support leader Isaac Ruto with it’s Chairman Gideon Moi claimed that JAP had conducted vote rigging and bribed voters to vote for their, preferred candidate (Aaron).
But that did not stop Aaron Cheruiyot from carrying the day.
