Three aspirants who lost in the Kericho woman representative primaries may run as independent candidates after they claimed they were rigged out in the Jubilee Party nominations last week.

They are incumbent Helen Chepkwony, Millicent Too and Susan Rotich.

Florence Bore was declared winner and given the party ticket.

Chepkwony said Bore had doctored figures to enable her to win and presiding officers in most of Kipkelion West helped her to win in an unfair and undemocratic process.

Speaking for a second time on Monday, the three told the Jubilee panel handling complaints on nomination to consider their case and call for a repeat election.
