Narok Senator Stephen Ntutu has announced his decision to retire from politics, citing his age. Ntutu said he will back former East African Affairs Principal Secretary John Konchellah for the seat in the next election. The Senator will also support his younger brother, current Narok West MP Patrick Ntutu, for the position of Governor, with current Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno as deputy governor and Lydia Ntimama, daughter of former Cabinet Minister William Ntimama, as Women Representative.
Speaking during a house warming party at the home of Keyian Ward MCA James Ntome at Masurura in Trans Mara West Sub County on Friday, Ntutu said that he will serve as an advisor to a new crop of leaders who will be elected next year. “The Ntutu, Konchellah, Ng’eno and Ntimama team is going to take over the leadership of Narok County after the 2017 general election since they enjoy the support of the majority of county residents,’’ said Ntutu.
The Senator’s younger brother Patrick said at the meeting that Governor Samuel Tunai had failed to deliver on the pledges he made to Narok voters in March 2013 and should be therefore be voted out. “The team you have seen before you today is ready to serve you with humility and dedication since the current government led by Governor Tunai has done very little for the people of Narok, despite the vast resources at his disposal,’’ said Ntutu.
The Narok West MP said that they supported Governor Tunai hoping that he will deliver on a number of projects that they had agreed on and that was the reason why they had fallen out with him.
