Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis Vows to Quit if He Fails to Deliver

  • Baringo Governor Stanley Kiptis on Tuesday vowed to quit if he failed to deliver on the promises he made during the campaign trail.

    Speaking to residents of Sachangwan, Kiptuno, Kewangoi, Kiptuno villages in Eldama Ravine Sub-county, the first time governor faulted cartels as preventing progress in his county.

    "If by 2022 I will not have worked satisfactorily then I will readily leave office and hand over to another person," he stated.

    He assured that he would remain true to his promises and strive to transform the lives of his constituents electorate.

    Kiptis urged for patience from the residents adding that he was still in the process of familiarising with the county functions.

    "Some people have already started saying that Governor Kiptis is doing nothing. I want to tell them a leader should be nurtured and supported so that he can get the energy and motivation to deliver," he added.

    He further urged the residents to air their grievances and participate in public forums so as to assist his administration to identify projects.

    "I know there are those who want this seat but am here and I will fight for it but at the moment let's focus on development issues instead of politicking," he explained addressing his critics.

    Earlier on Tuesday, Agriculture Cabinet Secretary (CS) Mwangi Kiunjuri on Tuesday indicated that he was prepared to table his resignation rather than have his name tarnished.

    Addressing members of the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, the CS noted that critics had kept on attacking his personality.

    However, he clarified that he would not succumb to any pressure or humiliation to leave office as he was busy serving Kenyans.
