Bomet County Women Representative Linet Chepkorir alias Toto who has been in the limelight ever since her Cinderella fairytale story that saw her ascend to the National Assembly against all odds, is now showing her tough side amidst scandalous accusations.
Following the surfacing of a photo which appeared to show the young Women Representative looking at Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua and his wife with a questionable stare, Toto has posted what seems like a coded tweet urging people not to relax but in fact keep on sending more and more Photoshop pictures.
In what looked like her taunting her naysayers, Toto requested all with Photoshop snaps to send them her way.
This comes hot on the heels of salacious reports that have been thrown her way about a recent trip to Rwanda where she accompanied the Deputy President.
Linet Chepkorir ‘Toto’ made history by becoming the youngest Woman Representative-elect after the August 9 General Election.
Ms Chepkorir, 24, an April 2021 graduate of Chuka University, beat eight older candidates to become the third Woman Representative in Bomet County.
“I’m grateful for the overwhelming support I’ve received from the voters in Bomet County from the time I threw my hat in the ring. Right from the UDA party primaries and the General Election, I’ve seen and appreciate the love shown by the people,” she said.
As her competitors traversed the county with fuel-guzzling vehicles, Ms Chepkorir walked to campaign venues, as well as motorcycles and vehicles donated and fuelled by well-wishers.
“I don’t take it for granted that I got the backing of voters from across the political divide. I promise them that I’ll do my best to deliver on my mandate,” the MP-elect said.
In a county with 376,985 registered voters as per the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) register, Ms Chepkorir garnered 242,775 votes against her closest rival, Dr Alice Milgo of Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM), who secured 43,180 votes, followed by Ms Beatrice Chepkemoi Chebomui with 4,639 votes.
The other candidates were Florence Cherono Birir (Independent, 2,045 votes), Viola Cherono Tesot (Independent, 1,740 votes), Hellen Taplelei Rotich (Wiper, 1,665), Jesca Cherono Rono (ANC, 1,478 votes), Susan Korir (ODM, 1,27 votes), Susan Koech (Independent, 1,247 votes).
