We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

A wind of change swept through Kajiado South as residents of Rombo Group Ranch today made a powerful statement and sent their leaders packing in election.

Wildlife is one of the most treasured resources in Kajiado South group ranches.

The group ranch election that was described by those who lost and won as fair and transparent, was direct opposite of the shameful election that happened Olgulului group ranch recently.

In the Rombo Annual General Meeting, two groups led by Mzee Lemaron Munyepera alias Mugabe and a young Turk, Sitelu Nkipapai faced each other in a most open and democratic election with each side garnering sizable votes.

Munyepera is the immediate former chairman who received 5, 813 votes, while the Nkipapai team had its day with a soothing 5, 881 votes.

There was no heavy police presence at the venue of the election unlike what was experienced the November 19 Olgulului AGM.

The results were not announced in huff and candidates from both sides of the divide were called to order and the results were read to them in the open.

Members of the group ranch will have a sound sleep today as they open a new chapter of leadership, who they have entrusted with their resources.

Although majority of them had displayed a strong opposition against the incumbent chairman during the campaigns leading to today’s election, the results indicates that Munyepera still has a clout and should not be simply wished away.

The youthful Nkipapai won with a margin of 68 votes, and given that this was his first attempt for the top seat he is destined to go places.

He has been given the mandate to lead and give direction in the management of the group ranch’s resources.

If he does not improve where Munyepera had allegedly messed up, the people Rombo will still converge at the same spot in the next one year and decide his fate.

Nkipapai’s new secretary is Joseph Lekakwai while the slot of treasurer was taken up by James Lekiundei.
