An aspirant for the Bureti parliamentary seat has begun road construction projects to win over voters.

Kericho businessman Charles Langat has poured resources into the construction of the 5km Kiptobon/Roret road in Tebesonik Ward and a 2km road in Cheplanget Ward.

Mr Langat said he is fulfilling a pledge he made to residents to build roads before election time.

The businessman said his top priority will be to improve road infrastructure.

"I am doing this because I promised the people of these areas that I will ensure that they have good roads.

"There is absolutely no problem with me doing this even before I become elected.

"I am a leader who keeps his word and I hope the people of Bureti will elect me as their next MP," he said.

Charles Rono, a resident of Cheplanget Ward, lauded Mr Langat's efforts.

"The road had been in bad state since the nineties and our appeals to numerous administrations went unheard," Mr Rono said.

Other contenders are incumbent Leonard Sang, lawyer Kipkoech Ng’etich and Kericho County Assembly Speaker Kiptergech Mutai.
