It was mother versus son for the Bomet East parliamentary seat which saw Beatrice Kones beat her son, Kipng’etich Kones.

The residents termed the rivalry as ‘unblessed.’ They therefore displayed a show of maturity and voted overwhelmingly for the mother.

Kipng’etich was running under the Chama Cha Mashinani party and received tremendous support from outgoing governor Isaac Ruto.

A resident from the area said, “You can never go against your parent and expect to succeed.”
A lecturer at laikipia, University termed the show for the son as political suicide as it was a cultural taboo.

Beatrice gave her son a thrashing of a lifetime by garnering 22796 against Kipng’etich’s 2410.
