A 24-year-old UDA spirant was locked out of Deputy President William Ruto’s meeting for apparently not dressing ‘weel’.
Linet Chepkorir’s who is seeking to succeed Bomet Woman Representative Joyce Korir said security guards at William Ruto’s official Karen residence locked her out as other aspirants were respectfully ushered into the compound.
In a report by the Daily Nation, Chepkorir said the officers cautioned her that William Ruo’s residence was “not a children’s playground” even after having paid the party’s KSh 6,000 aspirant’s fee.
After waiting for more than an hour, Chepkorir was later allowed in after showing her passcode to the meeting.
“Eventually, after about an hour, I was allowed in after I showed them my passcode to the meeting; electronically generated for members who have paid UDA aspirants’ fee of Sh6,000,” Chepkorir said.
Immediately she was allowed in, the youthful politician took a few photos and posted them on her social media, and shared her story.
After trending on social media, a designer in Mombasa called her and offered to upgrade her wardrobe, for free.
“They requested me to send them my measurements, in what I initially thought were a joke, but I complied nonetheless. I was surprised when I was called and told to pick up a parcel at the Ena Coach office in Bomet town,
“It contained a fashionable blouse, dress, and a skirt. I am very grateful to them for their support,” she said.
She however exuded confidence she will win the Bomet Woman Rep seat and represent the people of Bomet at the National Assembly.
Bomet Woman Rep Joyce Korir is seeking to succeed Bomet Central Member of Parliament MP Ronald Tonui who is quitting elective politics, after two terms at the helm.
