“Lead­ers should not to be­tray the trust the top coun­try lead­er­ship has in them. Some lo­cal lead­ers are putting in public “triv­ial” is­sues ac­cus­ing the govern­ment of all man­ner of ills. This is tan­ta­mount to hatch­ing a plot against the Ju­bilee lead­er­ship. The pres­i­dent and the deputy are in­ter­twined in the con­sti­tu­tion, you can­not fight any of them with­out touch­ing on the other… so be care­ful.”


“We shall take ac­tion against in­di­vid­u­als who spread the ru­mour, in­clud­ing a me­dia per­son­al­ity who an­nounced the sup­posed death on his twit­ter ac­count. It was very care­less of him. This has caused a lot of ten­sion and shock to Biwott’s fam­ily, friends and sup­port­ers. Such peo­ple need to be tamed.”


“If elected I want to do things dif­fer­ently. I will lis­ten more and value com­mu­nity par­tic­i­pa­tion in all ini­tia­tives. I am God fear­ing and I want to be a ser­vant leader and not a mas­ter dic­tat­ing peo­ple al­ways. I have learnt that there are two types of politi­cians. There are politi­cians who are real lead­ers with a call­ing to pro­vide lead­er­ship and serve the peo­ple and then there are those who are in pol­i­tics as a busi­ness for per­sonal gain”.
