Kajiado West MP Moses ole Sakuda has conceded defeat after losing to outgoing Keekonyokie MCA George Sunkuyia.

This is the second time Mr Sakuda has lost in the hands of Mr Sunkuyia.

"I now realise that Kajiado West will have a new MP in the [name] of George Sunkuyia," said Mr Sakuda at the Maasai Technical Training Institute in Kajiado where the final county results were announced.

"The people have decided at the ballot box and I respect their wish."

WORK TOGETHER

On his part, Mr Sunkuyia, who has also been the Deputy Speaker at the Kajiado County Assembly, said that time has come for the two to put aside their political differences for the sake of development in the constituency.

"It should also be remembered that Sakuda was my teacher in primary school and has been an inspiration in my political journey," said Mr Sunkuyia.

"Now that we have crossed that bridge, I am confident that I will serve the people of Kajiado West and that we shall scale higher heights of development."

On his part, Mr Sakuda wished the new MP well.
