William Ruto Finally Meets Linet Toto after Her Historic Win in Bomet UDA Nominations
Deputy President William Ruto has finally met Linet Toto who became an inspiration after winning a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket in Bomet.
Twenty-four-year-old Toto defeated seasoned politicians such as Joyce Korir to clinch the UDA ticket for the woman representative position in Bomet much to the delight of Kenyans.
On the morning of Sunday, April 1, the deputy president met the woman rep aspirant together with other UDA aspirants from Bomet.
“We salute the leadership of Bomet for its unity and commitment to delivering a victory for UDA in the August polls. Our line-up in the County is now complete: @BarchokHillary (Governor), MPs Brighton Yegon (Konoin), Richard Yegon (Bomet East), Richard Kilel (Bomet Central).
Linet Chepkorir “Toto” (Bomet), Francis Sigei (Sotik), Paul Bii (Chepalungu) and Senator Hillary Sigei. In our midst were also Nelson Mutai (Assembly Speaker) and Stephen Mutai (UDA Coordinator),” he said.
Toto clinches UDA ticket
As reported, Linet Chepkorir, alias Toto trounced nine other hopefuls to clinch the UDA party ticket for the seat currently occupied by Joyce Korir.
Other contestants in the race were Beatrice Chepkorir, Eddah Chepkoech, Faith Chepkirui, and Cicilia Chepkoech among others.
Toto blocked from accessing Ruto’s residence
On Tuesday, February 15, TUKO.co.ke reported that Toto recounted her tribulations in the hands of the guards manning Deputy President William Ruto’s Karen residence.
Ruto had convened a meeting with aspirants seeking elective posts via the UDA party in November 2021 when hell broke loose.
She was among the hundreds of aspirants from Rift Valley who called on Ruto in Karen. However, the guards blocked her from entering the residence, due to her kind of dressing.
They accused her of “intruding into a leaders’ meeting way above her cut.”
She later produced her passcode that secured her entry into the heavily guarded residence.
