Toto trounced nine other contestants in the race for the UDA ticked to emerge the winner amid frustrations presumably from supporters of her opponents who kicked her agents out of Sigor and Kapsubul polling stations.
In a statement, Chepokori thanked the residents of Bomet for giving her the mandate to contest for the Women’s representative seat in the forthcoming August polls.
