The burial ceremony of the mother of former Bomet governor Ruto is currently underway in Chepseon Kipkelion East Constituency in Kericho County and leaders who are eyeing various seats are also present to give last respect to Janet Tirop.
However, various politicians who have been given time to address the mourners have taken their time to campaign ahead of the August polls.
While addressing mourners, ODM nominated MP Wilson Sossion took his time to declare the candidate he will support in Bomet gubernatorial seat ahead of August.
He revealed that he will support former governor Ruto in the August polls simply because he is working with deputy president Ruto.
However, some times back he promised that he will declare his final stand but he hinted that he will not support Governor Barchok and Senator Hillary Sigei since they sabotage the nominations.
This move by Sossion is a great boost for Isaac Ruto ahead of August polls where he will be facing Governor Barchok and ANC candidate Mulo
