Former Internal Security Cabinet Secretary Joseph ole Senko on Wednesday clinched the Jubilee Party nomination for governor of Kajiado County.
A newcomer to elective politics, Ole Senku won the nomination with 18,456 votes, with his rival Tarayia ole Kores garnering 6,705 votes.
Ole Lenku is the second former CS in Uhuru’s first cabinet to clinch a Governor’s seat nomination, following yesterday’s Anne Waiguru win in the Kirinyaga County Jubilee nomination process.
In the MPs contest, Moses ole Sekuda became the latest incumbent Member of Parliament to lose nomination. Sekuda joins other MPs including Oburu Odinga, Jakoyo Midiwo, and all of incumbent MPs in Kirinyaga county who have been rejected by voters.
