Kajiado senator-elect Samuel Kanar Seki has thanked the people of the county for sustaining a peaceful campaign and election devoid of tribal undertones.
“I am happy that while some politicians were pushing for hate campaigns, the United Democratic Alliance candidates continued preaching for peace to prevail in Kajiado,” said Seki after receiving an election certificate from the IEBC’s county returning officer Festus Muchege.
Seki appealed to Kajiado residents to continue living in harmony and to preach peace at all times as the country moves on after the general election.
He said all the people living in Kajiado are stakeholders and beneficiaries of the proceeds of the devolved system owing to its cosmopolitan status.
“I am humbled today after you joined hands together, without thinking tribal, to vote for me. Thank you my people, and I will continue to remain your humbled servant,” said Seki.
The soft-soken elected senator also gave gratitude to his family for standing and supporting him through the entire period of his campaign to the general election.
“May I also take this opportunity to thank my county party leader, Katoo ole Metito, who has been supportive to me during the campaign and who propelled a campaign on issues and not the trivialities,” said Seki.
The elected senator also took time to congratulate those he termed his worthy competitors in the senate race.
He said Judith Pareno (ODM), Moses Sakuda (Jubilee), and Simon Nkeri gave him a run for his money and promised to work closely with them as they move forward.
“I also want to congratulate MPs-elect Leah Sankaire, George Sunkuyia, and Onesimus Nkogoyo with all the MCA-elect candidates from the UDA in Kajiado,” said Seki.
He said UDA managed to send 13 MCAs to Kajiado County Assembly against 8 from ODM and 2 from Jubilee.
Seki also gave tribute to their party leader and Deputy President William Ruto for driving a sustained campaign against the Azimio side in the just-concluded elections.
