Eldoret tycoon Bundotich Zedekiah Kiprop has expressed interest in the race for Uasin Gishu county governor seat in 2022.
However, there are a number of powerful politicians he must work with for him to succeed. They include Deputy President William Ruto, Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago and Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.
DP Ruto hails from Uasin Gishu county and he is Rift Valley's de facto leader. Definitely, he has a huge following in the county and every politician running for any elective seat be it that of MCA, governor, senator, county woman MP or constituency MP has high chances of succeeding if they associate with him.
Bundotich who is also known as Buzeki will have no option but to stick to the DP when the time comes for him to win in the gubernatorial elections.
Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago is undoubtedly one of the most popular and loved politician in the county after winning in the two successive gubernatorial elections (2013 and 2017).
Mandago's large number of supporters is of immense importance to Buzeki in the run up to the next general elections.
Buzeki needs to seek support from him to triumph in 2022 polls.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi is amongst the county's prominent politicians. He has resoundingly won in two consecutive elections.
Further, Sudi is known for his outspokenness on matters pertaining to the welfare of the nation. He became instrumental in governor Jackson Mandago's reelection in 2017 by campaigning for him.
Influential, powerful and vocal legislators like Oscar Sudi will be of great importance to the the victory of the business man.
