Paul Mosbei installed as Toropo community elder chair


Paul Mosbei has been installed as the National chairman of the Toropo community which is the eleventh sub-tribe of the Kalenjin community.

The installation ceremony led by the Miot council of elders Mr. Benjamin Kitur and attended by Kalenjin elders from various regions was conducted at Sochoi Kalenjin elders shrine.

Toropo community is a Kalenjin marginalized tribe living as squatters in various parts of the country since their eviction in the forest some decades ago.

It is the eleventh sub-tribe of Kalenjin community which needs to be settled, as majorities are in Tanzania thus government urged to look into the matter and address it.

Speaking after his installation, Mr. Mosbei said as Toropo community they have been left out by the government as they don’t have any representative thus humbly request the national government to remember them by employing their youths in various dockets so as to make them feel at peace and part of the government.

He lauded the efforts of the Kalenjin elders by believing in him and giving him the opportunity to serve as one of the elders and in the cadre of an elder chair saying he is very grateful for the opportunity and will serve diligently.

“Am very humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve in the capacity of an elder chair, and I want to thank the entire Kalenjin community for their support.” Mosbei added.

He urged the politicians to exercise dignity and sanity especially during this moment when the country is preparing for the coming general elections.
