Nandi Governor aspirant Henry Kosgey has announced that he will save the region from chains of greediness if elected as the next County boss.
Mr Kosgey a former long serving MP for Tinderet is seeking to unseat the incumbent Dr Cleophas Lagat who is facing a myriad of challenges ranging from corruption to nepotism.
The Tourism Fund Board chairman has called upon the over 1 million residents of Nandi to emulate residents of Kosirai location on what he termed as the good work they have done in breathing development in the area.
Mr Kosgey hailed the residents for laying down a firm foundation by following in the footsteps of former Nandi chief Joel Arap Malel.
“Kosirai location is a role model. Since Mzee Arap Malel was a chief of Kosirai, he laid a firm foundation and all those who have followed his footsteps, they have driven the location according to his vision,” said Mr Kosgey.

Speaking at Kosirai High School in Chesumei where he donated a bus, Mr Kosgey a former cabinet minister thanked the residents for not grabbing the land set aside for development.
“The land where Kosirai High School stands today and the local administration offices grounds were set aside during the tenure of Arap Malel. I am glad that you have continued to be a location that is built under the foundation of God,” he added.
He called on the locals to continue developing the location and lead as an example in Nandi County.
“I can assure you that I am together with all of you in whatever you do. I have sacrificed myself completely to serve you. I want to raise Nandi high and save it from greedy leaders,” he said.
He at the same time called upon the youths to emulate the likes of Olympic 3000m steeplechase champion and Diamond Race winner Conseslus Kipruto in a bid to better their lives.
“If you work hard in life like my friend Conseslus Kipruto, you will definitely go places. He is a testimony of a hard working youth,” said Mr Kosgey.
