A Narok governor aspirant has said the region needs an independent governor.
Daniel Kiptunen said the cosmopolitan county needs a governor who will be a neutral face to residents.
Kiptunen, who is running as an independent candidate, made the remarks yesterday at public rallies in Chebunyo, Abossi and Osilanga in Trans Mara.
"There is a tendency of candidates from different political parties to advocate for their individual party policies leaving aside those from other parties hence the inequality," he said.
Kiptunen said the region is divided along clan, tribal and party lines and electing a governor allied to any of the political parties, will make the situation worse.
"It is no secret that even various communities in the country have formed their own political parties to champion for their individual interests. If this is left to happen at the county level, it will compromise the service delivery to the locals," he said.
The aspirant said there is a likelihood of marginalisation and discrimination in terms of job distribution and resource allocation to those who vote against an elected governor from one of the parties.
