Joyce Laboso’s message to Isaac Ruto after embarrassing him in Bomet

"His silence over the unfolding results is creating anxiety among the electorate"

The National Assembly Deputy Speaker Joyce Laboso has asked Governor Isaac Ruto to concede defeat.

Laboso said that from yesterday's provisional results, the people of Bomet County had spoken. She urged Ruto to respect the verdict of the people.

"I expect Governor Ruto to concede defeat." said Laboso

The people of Bomet have spoken. We have a responsibility to heed the voices of the electorate," said Laboso yesterday morning at her home in Sotik. Laboso said the governor's continued silence over the unfolding results is creating anxiety among the electorate.

"The people of Bomet are waiting for Ruto to come out and concede defeat. His long silence is only building up tension," Laboso added. She said she would welcome any move by Ruto to reach her and acknowledge defeat.
