Amongst the trios set to face off on Tuesday in the gubernatorial election, two technocrats, Patrick Ntutu and Joseph Musuni present an opportunity for voters to rate their capacity to deliver.
The duos have stints in high level private and public sector management, with shares of success and controversy. Voters will be keen to rate if they have the skills necessary to transform Narok.
Our focus on the two is based on the reality that Narok, an immensely resource- rich but poor county with global praise, will require innovative leadership to detonate its wealth, most of which is held in the raw form.
Patrick Ntutu meteoric rise has send everyone freaking out, turning the gubernatorial race into a single race and a site of a big bitter political fight shaking fortes of both Joseph Musuni and incumbent governor Samuel Tunai, a reignited political survivor of 2003 Kilgoris parliamentary election.
For a county well known for its conservative politics, Patrick Keturet Ntutu popularly known as PK August 8 victory will represent not a backlash to traditions, rather a virtual anointment to power of a growing popular validation by the electorate.
Ntutu, a political warrior, escapes any precise description.
His grown support is an expression of a popular will for an overwhelming political favorite without semblance, an ultimate gatekeeper and power wielder in the county politics.
Patrick Ntutu holds a series of viewpoints on a number of issues that appeals to a broad swaths of Narok voters who feel disadvantaged by the current government.
His core philosophies have brought him masses of adoring voters in the county, especially the young, most of whom see him as the proverbial messiah, trusting him with their future.
And now, for all intents and purposes, while the current scion of the Ntutu family, unmistaken son of ex- Sr chief Lerionka Ole Ntutu, continue to position himself for the August 8 elections, a self-revolution appears to have detonated.
Ntutu’s superior odds over opponents appears – as a result of vote-winning pledges, perhaps, or more effectively a spirited grass-roots campaign.
According to strategic experts, Ntutu’s rise is rather a satisfactory validation by Narokians of a political dynasty that spans four generations- the Ntutu dynasty.
It is no wonder then that Patrick Ntutu quest for governorship has found critical support throughout the county amid Maasai political systems continued dominance by generations of political families.
The Maasai are known to value political hereditary as well as largely monopolized clan’s rulings who wield power for generations with every generation invigorating if not enhancing governance.
Ntutu, a governance expert with high profile stints in provincial administration, his high-profile support and numerous endorsements throughout the county solidifies a political establishment.
It appears that with wide connections and influence, what stands between him and the governorship is a matter of time.
