 Delegates of Party of National Unity (PNU) Alliance in Nandi County braved Wednesday rains to elect their top county party officials.

The hundreds of delegates from the four constituencies in the county who defected from PNU over allegations of being sidelined and ignored by Saitoti’s PNU and joined Kiraitu Murungi’s PNU Alliance party queued to vote for various positions of the officials. 

The election held at Kipchoge stadium saw former Nandi County PNU Chairman Simion Murkelda Ngeny elected as the top official and would be assisted by Jonah Birech in the execution of party duties.

The delegates from Aldai, Mosop, Emgwen and Tindiret constituencies vowed to work closely with Kiraitu Murungi and give a big blow to Saitoti’s PNU party which they declared as “inconsiderate and misinformed in its agenda.” (Read: Former PNU delegates from Nandi County join the PNU Alliance

Ngeny said that he contacted Kiraitu and agreed that in a week’s time, party office would be opened so that party strategies are laid in time before official campaigns kick off.

“I have just talked with Kiraitu and he has promised that he would be here in a week’s time to officially open party office at Kapsabet town,” Ngeny announced minutes after he was elected.

The delegates called on Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta to join the party saying that it would be wise for him to make quick decision and lay down his political agenda.

“We are still calling on Kenyatta to join us so that we can sail together to victory,” Ngeny said to the applause of the delegates.

Birech said that the party would unite with other parties and further promised the delegates that they will be well represented.

Other county officials elected include: Francis Rob, Emily Mase, Paul Tanui, David Yego, Cleophas Tanui, Mary Samoei, Grace Sitienei and Thomas Lel as secretary, deputy secretary, treasurer, deputy treasurer, organizing secretary, women leader, deputy women leader and youth leader respectively.
