EALA MP Hon Florence Jematia Sergon from Kimalel, Baringo South Sub-County has declared interests to vie for Baringo Women Representative seat in the forthcoming general elections.
The East African Legislative Assembly legislator who will be facing off with the incumbent Hon Gladwell Cheruiyot of Kanu, made the declaration in Sabor, Baringo South on Sunday August 15 while addressing locals remotely through a phone call from Arusha Tanzania.
In the recent past Hon Jematia was seen to be among the contenders for Baringo South Constituency seat which is currently held by Hon Charles Kamuren.
The MP is known for her close political ties with Deputy President William Ruto, a relationship that dates back to 2011 during the formation of United Democratic Movement (UDM) which later rebranded to the then popular outfit in Rift Valley -the United Democratic Party (URP).
Other aspirants for the same seat include Hon Susan Chesyna (Director KVDA), Hon Rebecca Lomong (Member Baringo County Assembly Service Board) and Nancy Chesire.
