Narok town voters will in 68 days decide whether to retain the incumbent MCA— Bernard Torome— or welcomed back former mayor Kerumpoti Sadera amid concerns of a town in shambles and a record low on the rate and ease of doing business in the county’s capital.
Sadera who won ODM nominations says was approached by a number of town dwellers who felt that the current MCA Bernard Torome has not been up to task of and asked him to entertain coming back.
Mr. Sadera who lost narrowly to the incumbent in 2013, trounced Oloishuro Dapash during the ODM primaries. He hopes the August 8 poll is a redemptive return. Dapash, who lost spectacularly has since decamped to Frontier Party.
Besides the incumbent who also secured the Jubilee ticket in cut-throat primaries, Sadera faces Lucas Kudate and Merrily Totona in the 2017 race. Kudate, an ex- chief is eyeing the ticket as an independent candidate whereas after losing Jubilee nominations bid to Bernard Torome
With just about two months to ago, Sadera says his agenda is pegged on fixing a broken town, unity as well as addressing the current state of confusion in the town. He was cleared by IEBC on Monday to vie.
In 2013, Narok town ward, with 15 polling stations saw a voter turnout rate of 82%. In August, 26,000 voters are expected to cast ballots in the heavily perceived Nasa Maasai town.
All I can say is that I’m proud of my record and believe I had left the town in a better place, than it is today. Now it is time for the town to pull together under new leadership- Kerumpoti Sadera.
Some town residents interviewed told Narok Newspaper Edition that they hope that Mr. Sadera’s previous years of service and role as mayor will help move the town in the right direction.
In a brief interview after being cleared to contest for the assembly race, Sadera said voters sent a clear signal that they are dissatisfied with the status quo.
