Former Nakuru County Finance Minister Dr. Peter Ketyenya is allegedly considering vying for Kuresoi South parliamentary seat as an independent candidate.
Dr. Ketyenya resigned from his county post in February as a requirement by the IEBC to all public and civil servants who wanted to contest for any elective seat.
Ketyenya had declared his bid for Kuresoi South MP seat on UDA party but later stepped down before primaries for unclear reasons.
After pulling out of the race, he took to public that he had been appointed as Deputy President William Ruto’s economic advisor, hinting of plans of being Susan Kihika’s running mate.
Kihika is vying for Nakuru gubernatorial seat on UDA party ticket and will face off with Jubilee’s Lee Kinyanjui on August 9.
When contacted for comment, Dr. Ketyenya did not respond to our phone calls.
If Dr. Ketyenya will vie for the MP seat he will face off with Joseph Tonui and Ubuntu’s Denis Koech
