Buzeki denied being a proxy of Deputy President William Ruto and insisted he was self-made

Before he ran for the Jubilee party nominations for governor, little was known about the multi-billion logistics and dairy farming entrepreneur.

Critics dismissed his candidate, claiming that some powerful individuals who wanted to take control of the vast resources in the region were behind his candidature.

"We want him to tell us where was he until three months to the nomination exercise. It is clear he has no agenda for the county but wants to act on behalf of his masters who sent him," claimed Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi who has been against Buzeki’s candidature.

But Buzeki shot back, saying his detractors were jealous of his of his humility to interact with people of all social classes and his vast business empire.

"I am here to serve the people. I am not here to steal their money or fight petty politics, but to turn Uasin Gishu into a model county. I am not joining politics to acquire wealth but to offer my expertise in solving the challenges the people face within the established frameworks," he said.

He also denied being a proxy of Deputy President William Ruto and insisted he was a self-made and independent man.

In the hotly contested elections, Buzeki lost, garnering 82,869 votes against Mandago's 126,681.
