Nominated Member of Parliament, Wilson Sossion, on Saturday, October 23, spoke on reports of his vehicles being pelted with stones by a section of rowdy youths in Bomet Town.
Sossion affirmed that a group of youths had been hired to prevent him from entering the town and addressing the residents.
He noted that their plans were, however, thwarted before they could materialize.
“The vehicle was not pelted with stones. Some boys were hired by a rival politician to disrupt my rally, but I still addressed the residents. The unknown boys later came to my meeting and apologized for trying to disrupt it,” he said.
“The boys tried to execute what they were paid to do, but it was a failed attempt,” he stated.
The former Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) Secretary General was flanked by Nominated Member of Parliament David Ole Sankok during the incident. Reports had indicated that a group of rowdy youths, loaded with crude items, were linked to the planned attack.
This comes as Sossion shifted his allegiance from the Orange Democratic Movement to United Democratic Alliance party. He affirmed vouching for Deputy President William Ruto in the 2022 presidential race.
“I can count you as amongst the few brave and fearless leaders to take that route (surpass President Uhuru Kenyatta’s development projects) in the African continent,” Sossion stated.
Sossion is slated to face off against incumbent Christopher Langat for the Bomet senatorial seat. Both leaders are eyeing the legislative seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.
Football Kenya Federation (FKF) South Rift branch chairperson, David Bunei, former MCA Aurelia Rono and KANU Secretary General, Nick Salat, have also thrown their hat in the ring for the Bomet senatorial seat.
