It was around this time that he also attacked the Rift Valley regional commissioner, George Natembeye, for “abandoning” his job.
The politician lashed out at Natembeya for focusing on his political ambitions while forgetting the security of the Rift Valley.
He said the attacks that were observed in Baringo and Laikipia were the result of the commissioner’s laxity since he joined the political arena.
“All the attacks are happening right under his nose because he has turned his attention to Trans Nzoia, where he wants to be the governor rather than serving the people of the Rift Valley first,” the politician began.
The Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) requirement states that officials who wish to join politics must leave the office by February 9, 2022.
