Oscar Sudi Congratulates Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii, Urges Residents to Maintain Peace
Kapseret Member of parliament Oscar Sudi has congratulated governor Jonathan Bii Alias Koti Moja after he was sworn in as Uasin Gishu second governor.
“Congratulations.Uasin Gishu County Governor H.E Jonathan Bii Chelilim(Koti Moja) for assuming office during your swearing in ceremony at Eldoret Sports Club grounds. I urge you to remain a true pillar of devolution and pick up from where your predecessor H.E Jackson Mandago left,” he said.
Speaking at the Eldoret Sports Club, the Kapseret member of parliament called upon all leaders, both elected and the non -elected to join hands in the governing in order to improve the living standards of the people.
“Election is now a thing of the past. Campaigns were done and the people chose their preferred candidates and a race must have a winner and a loser. All those who run for various leadership positions are great leaders regardless of who won and who didn’t. However, it is now time for those elected in office to begin working for those that employed them by improving infrastructure as well as promoting agricultural extension,” said Sudi.
“I take this opportunity to thank residents of Uasin Gishu county for the peace they maintained before, during, and after the August 9th polls. The notion of Uasin Gishu being one of the listed hotspot counties was just propaganda. We have experienced the most peaceful elections in this year’s elections since no case of violence has been experienced in any part of our county. It is good that the people made a decision not to go back to what happened in 2007,” added Sudi.
Sudi further accorded endless praises to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, IEBC, for the transparent transmission of the election results urging the opposition leader to accept the results issued by the commission.
“If there is any time that the IEBC has conducted free and fair elections is during the just ended election. All those against the results announced by the IEBC chair, Wafula Chebukati, should just learn to accept that we already have a president that was elected by the people and should pave way for the swearing-in of the president-elect, William Samoei Ruto,” said Sudi.
The swearing-in ceremony was graced with almost all elected leaders of Uasin Gishu County.
