“The preparations are almost complete and we urge residents to turn up in large numbers on Thursday during the swearing-in ceremony,” he said.

Kihara thanked residents, County leaders, security, and religious teams for ensuring the smooth operation of the August 9th polls.

“We, as Uasin Gishu residents are pleased and happy for the peace and quiet we witnessed during the entire electioneering process despite having been listed as a violence hotspot area by the National Cohesion and Integration Commission, NCIC. All the stakeholders worked tirelessly to ensure the voting process run smoothly and no cases of violence could occur. It is a big win for us because the peace message we spread before the elections reached each and every one of us and we embraced it,” said Kihara.

Kihara assured residents of continuous security and called on all the residents to go back to their normal activities with the purpose of sustaining themselves in these hard economic times.
He invited all residents to attend the ceremony citing it is an important event for all since the governor-elect will be the leader for the next five years.

“The swearing-in ceremony of the second governor is a very important event for us. This transition is historic and we, therefore, invite all to attend and experience the transition of the governor’s office from the outgoing governor to the governor-elect. All security apparatus are ready in ensuring the event runs smoothly as planned. We urge all of you to come early so that we can complete this function and go back to our jobs,” added Kihara.
Governor-elect Jonathan Bii Alias Koti Moja thanked residents for electing him and promised to work diligently for those who voted for him and against him.

“I will be a leader for those who voted for me and those who did not. All elected leaders have now put the elections in the past and are ready to work to ensure the needs of our people are met. I urge all of you to be calm and await the judgment of the court concerning the presidential results. The truth will be known,” said Chelilim.
