Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago’s new political party seem to be in the offing if what transpired today at Inua mama Jenga Taifa rally in Eldoret is anything to go by.
The party with a symbol of ‘rungu’ appears to be in the pipeline with Mandago’s and his close allies today attending the rally at Central Primary grounds all in possession of ‘rungus’.
The MPs who appeared linked to the party include Oscar Sudi (Kapsaret), Caleb Kositany (Soy)and Gladys Shollei (Uasin gishu) among others.
Mandago who is synonymous with “rungu” could be the chair of the ‘new’ political party, known as a gifted orator, a crowd puller no-nonsense leader, fits the position.
To a keen observer, today’s action was not just a coincident, it was well calculated in such a way that ‘rungu’ featured prominently in the hands of almost all the speakers.
Coming at a time when glaring division between supporters of President Kenyatta and DP Ruto, Mandago and a section of legislators appear to be eyeing 2022 outfit, with fears of cracks within the ruling Jubilee party.
Governor Mandago today hosted the Inua Mama, Jenga Taifa Uasin gishu edition where he applauded the initiative for empowering lives and livelihoods of women,youths and people with disabilities.
47 groups of women, youths and people with disabilities in Uasin Gishu benefited from the Inua Mama, Jenga Taifa.
They were given welding machines, car wash machines, sewing machines, brick welding machines and Meko jikos.
