Bomet  Governor Isaac Ruto is headed for an crushing defeat by Sotik MP Joyce Laboso in the gubernatorial race, according to provisional results released by IEBC.

As at 6pm Wednesday, Ms Laboso (Jubilee) was leading with 175,932 representing a 67 per cent. Mr Ruto of Chama Cha Mashinani/Nasa had 85,863 -32.8 per cent.

The Bomet governor had decided to play safe and ‘multi-bet’ on two positions in the August 8, elections: seeking re-election and also joining the Nasa coalition in the hope that it will win the presidency.

He had been promised the deputy premier cabinet secretary in charge of State Department of Devolution and Planning, Finance and National Treasury.

Mr Ruto had said he would still vie for Bomet Governor and then nominate people to take up positions allocated to him in Nasa.
