The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

Bomet Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto on Sun­day urged tea fac­tory work­ers from Nyanza and Western to reg­is­ter as vot­ers in Keri­cho and Bomet.

He urged mem­bers of the Kisii, Luo and Luhya com­mu­ni­ties work­ing for James Fin­lays and Unilever Tea Kenya not to vote in their ru­ral homes. Rutto spoke dur­ing thanks­giv­ing prayers at Kap­ki­l­abei Pri­mary School, Konoin sub­county.

He praised mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ties for build­ing the economies of the two coun­ties. Rutto said they have the right to elect lead­ers of their choice next year. “As gov­er­nor, I’m here to fight for your stay in Bomet so that you will be part of this county now and in the fu­ture with­out fear of dis­crim­i­na­tion.”
