Immediate former Gor Mahia treasurer Sally Bolo has thrown her hat in the ring for Lang’ata Parliamentary seat in August 9th election.
The firebrand administrator who is credited with digitizing Gor Mahia’s gate collection through e-ticketing during her tenure as treasurer, is gunning for the seat from the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.
A highly trained human resource practitioner with vast experience in financial industry and sports management, Bolo, presented her nomination papers to Orange House on Friday 11th March 2022 accompanied by her supporters and expressed optimism in her quest to lead the Sub-County.
“The decision was a culmination of thorough introspection and very wide and candid consultations with the great people of Lang’ata.
Lang’ata Sub-County, once represented by H.E Raila Odinga needs a strong, wise, humble, listening and caring representative who espouses the great values our society is in dire need of.
It is based on these needs and the apparent gap witnessed in the last four and half years that I present my candidature to the residents for careful vetting and consequent approval. I come packed with vast experience in financial sector and sports management, two very important sectors to the youth,” said Bolo
Bolo refused to draw the gender card insisting her qualification and ability is as good as any male aspirant in the race.
“Being a woman in a male dominated race hardly scares me. As a young person my focus is to base my campaign on policies. Being a resident of Langa’ata I know the gaps that exist which need fixing.
With constant consultations, transparent management and humane approach to issues affecting fellow residents I have very strong conviction that we can make Lang’ata a shining beacon for others to emulate,” added she
The Sub-County has attracted a lot of interest from diverse political players but Bolo believes she will be the first woman to represent Lang’ata constituency in the next parliament.
The firebrand ex Gor Mahia official will embark on door to door campaigning ahead of ODM primaries from where her race will be half won should she clinch the Orange party’s ticket.
She will face off against the incumbent Nixon Korir,Jaoko Oburu,son of the EALA MP Oburu Odinga,commedian Felix Odiwour AKA Jalas among other aspirants.
