"With a lot of humility, I want to give my appreciation to President Uhuru Kenyatta for the honour he bestowed on me

"However, today, I quit the government to focus on my ambitions on Kericho governor seat," he said. 

Former Inspector General of Police Boinnet vacated office as the Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) in the Ministry of Tourism and Wildlife on Tuesday, February 3. 

Boinnet will go head on to Elgeyo Marakwet gubernatorial seat.  

“Today’s appearance in Parliament commemorates the end of my duty as a CAS because shortly after this I am going to submit my resignation because I plan to vie for Elgeyo Marakwet’s gubernatorial seat," he stated.  

Mining and Petroleum CAS Mosonik will bid for the Bomet Governor seat in the upcoming polls. 

“In 2022 I will throw my weight for the gubernatorial seat in Bomet County. This is a decision which has arrived after searching and thinking over it,” Mosonik said. 

Labour CAS Ole Ntutu campaigns for the Narok governor's seat while Wildlife PS Segor will replicate in Baringo county.
