Details of Governor Ruto's meeting with Laboso

Isaac Ruto has not been seen or spoken since he was trounced by Laboso.

The two will meet during Laboso’s swearing in at the Bomet Green Stadium after the committee charged with the transition of power held its final meeting on Monday under the Assumption of Office laws.

This will be the first time Ruto will be seen or heard since he lost the Bomet gubernatorial race after he garnered 86,462 votes under his Chama Cha Mashinani Party against Laboso’s 176,545 votes.

According to The Star, the transitional committee chairman Jonathan Soi who is also the county secretary, said all plans were in place to ensure a smooth transition to the new administration.

“As the team tasked with this crucial process we have put all the necessary arrangements in place for that particular day and even after to ensure there are no hitches as soon as the new governor comes in as provided for in law,” Soi said.

The meeting was also attended by county commissioner Erastus Ekidor and other top security officers in the county.

Jubilee’s Laboso has promised new administrative changes and a ‘complete shift from the past’ in the management of the county upon her assumption of office next week.

She promised to include all stake holders in development.

“I am Bomet governor, a governor for those who voted for me and those who did not vote for me. I am also Isaac Ruto’s governor as he belongs to this county,” Laboso stated.
