New Bomet KNUT officials welcome competitors to work with them 

Desmond Langat, new KNUT Executive Secretary for Bomet Branch. He wants to work with the losers in the election that he won.

Newly elected officials of Bomet Branch of KNUT have extended an olive branch to their competitors who lost in the recent elections, asking that they work together to improve their welfare.

Led by Executive Secretary Desmond Langat and his assistant Jeff Bett, they said they are willing to work with their competitors for the benefit of the teachers of Bomet.

Speaking in Siongiroi in a thanksgiving meeting, the two leaders thanked the teachers for turning out in large numbers and voting overwhelmingly for them.

Desmond Langat is celebrated after winning the KNUT by-election for Bomet.

Langat described Peter Sang, the immediate former acting Executive Secretary, as a worthy competitor who had a good manifesto for teachers.

“I am calling upon all our opponents to come and sit with us and discuss how best the teachers’ issues can be handled because at the end of the day, it is all about teachers,” Langat said.

He promised to work with all the teachers in the county regardless of their preferred candidates, saying it was now time to work as campaigns were over.

On his part, Bett lauded the teachers for exercising their voting rights, comparing elections to a football match that has a winner and a loser.

“Our doors are wide open for our opponents to come and give us their ideas so that we can incorporate them,” he said.

The seat fell vacant after the former Executive Secretary Malel Langat was elevated to the position of First Vice Chairman of the union.
