, NAROK, Kenya, Aug 10 – Jubilee maintained its hold of Narok County despite the widespread notion that the region was an Opposition stronghold.
It retained four of the six parliamentary seats except Narok North’s Moitalel ole Kenta who recaptured his seat on an ODM ticket and Narok West which went to CCM.
This is the only county where all the MPs retained their seats with the only loser being Narok West’s Patrick ole Ntutu who abandoned his parliamentary ambition to help his brother Stephen ole Ntutu face it off with JP’s Samuel Tunai in the gubernatorial race on a CCM ticket.
The Ntutus have been sent to oblivion after JP’s Tunai floored Stephen.
Jubilee lost the Narok West seat to CCM’s Gabriel Tong’oyo.
Kenta had won the seat on a TNA ticket in 2013.
In 2013, the Jubilee coalition clinched all the five parliamentary seats in the county through URP apart from Emurua Dikir’s Joana Ng’eno who won on a Kenya National Congress ticket.
Ng’eno retained his ticket through Kanu which is supporting Jubilee Party.
Another loss for the Jubilee Party was the senatorial seat which went to ODM’s Ledama ole Kina.
Woman Representative Roselinda Soipan Kudate retained her seat via JP.
She was the pioneer Narok County Woman Representative after clinching the seat on a URP ticket in 2013.
