Four Bomet MPs in bid to mend fences with Rutto as 2017 elec­tion nears

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

Four Bomet MPs have be­gun rec­on­cil­ia­tory ef­forts with Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto and other lead­ers ahead of the next elec­tion. Ron­ald Tonui (Bomet Cen­tral), Bernard Bett (Bomet East), Sammy Koech (Konoin) and woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Ce­cilia Ngetich on Wed­nes­day met Na­tional Wa­ter Con­ser­va­tion and Pipe­line Cor­po­ra­tion chair­man Julius Kones, who wants to be­come Bomet gov­er­nor, at Par­lia­ment Build­ings. The agenda of the meet­ing re­mains un­clear. This came barely a week af­ter the same MPs met Rutto at the same venue. Some res­i­dents claim the MPs ap­proached Rutto to fund their cam­paigns, allegations which have been de­nied by Tonui, who is be­lieved to be the con­vener of the meet­ings. Bomet Senator Wil­fred Le­san, Na­tional Assem­bly Deputy Speaker Joyce La­boso and Chep­alungu MP Paul Sav­imbi did not at­tend the meet­ing.
