Watchman shocks many with unexpected win (Photos)

This year’s Jubilee nominations have proven to be full of surprises.

But the biggest surprise of all is a cook and a watchman in Kericho County who grabbed 2 of the MCA posts in the just concluded Jubilee Party nominations.

In Waldai Ward in Kericho County, Daniel Ng’etich a cook at the local high school Sosiot Girl’s Secondary School in Belgut won the Jubilee ticket.

While Eric Kipkirui Bett aka 'Watchman Tosha' in Kipchebor ward in Kericho Town won over the voters with his humility trumping incumbent MCA Joel Siele and Charles Keter’s ally Hillary Chepkwony alias Cheplanget.

The fact that he campaigned on foot  which was very different from other aspirants who chose to cruise around in fancy cars and motorcades made him a popular choice for the voters.

And to celebrate his victory, he took to town atop a mkokoteni where he was received by cheering supporters.
