Shock as imported youths vandalized a plaque of a bridge connecting Kipsonoi and Kapletundo wards with incriptions of Eng. John Mosonik names.
According to sources from the area, the goons came from direction of Bomet town and one supporter of a gubernatorial aspirant was among them.
Bomet has since been a volatile spot when it comes to politics and apparently political realignment is taking shape with Eng. Mosonik being feared by rivals to be gubernatorial race front runner.
Mosonik unlike other local leaders prides in establishment of various infrastructural projects across the county and this might boost his candidature should he decide to vie.
This bridge is the only one at the county that withstands demolition caused by heavy rains.
However, this morning, local elders have condemned the incident warning that pursuit for political scores should not be used to destroy established projects.
” Though Eng. Mosonik, led its establishment and commissioning, his rivals who fear facing off with him come 2022 should stop vandalizing public projects,” elders warned
So far, former Governor Isaac Ruto, the incumbent Governor Dr. Hillary Barchok have declared that they will be vying for gubernatorial seat come 2022.
The bridge was commissioned by Eng. Mosonik in attendance of Energy CS Charles Meter.
