My name is Governor Jonathan Kimeli Bii Chelilim, the second governor of Uasin Gishu serving my first term. I am a PhD candidate for Project Planning and Management at Kisii University. I have a Master of Arts degree in Project Planning and Management from Kisii University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Luther Rice University and a Diploma in Information Science from Sigalagala Technical Training Institute.

Between 2018 and 2022, i served as an advisor to the County Governor of West Pokot, H.E. Prof. Lonyangapuo on education matters. Being a county with one of the lowest literacy levels in the country, i helped him put up measures such as increment of bursary allocation to up to Ksh. 300,000,000 per year to needy students and increased enrollment of students to University and introduction of Adult education program.

Prior to joining politics in 2007, i served at Moi University for over 10 years, in various capacities. I began as a junior library staff but moved up the ranks swiftly to join in leadership engagements of student’s affairs. This was attributed to my extra ordinary interactive skills which were promptly picked by the university leadership.

I was then transferred to the Dean of Students office where together with a multidisciplinary team, founded a generational impactful program dubbed MOI UNIVERSITY ACADEMIC OUTREACH. Within this program, i traversed the country to encourage and motivate students to pursue studies under the innovated parallel academic programmes in Moi University and other Kenyan public Universities.

Following the enormous success of the outreach program and my desire to mentor and create positive impact in the society, i established a new program called RE-ROUTE. This program helped graduates and students to seek work and academic opportunities abroad. The program has been a success as hundreds of Kenyan students and graduates have emigrated to Australia, Canada, Qatar and Europe countries while many more have initiated their emigration processes within the program.

As an ardent believer in community empowerment, i spearheaded the establishment of Kasari Cooperative Society in Kabenes earlier on in my life to support farmers. This co-operative society grew and gave birth to MoiSoy Millers to process farmer’s grains.

As a strong advocate for peaceful coexistence, i have greatly championed peace initiatives in the County. This attribute is crucial for Uasin Gishu County because it is greatly cosmopolitan. In 2008, following the post-election violence that was witnessed in most parts of the country, i was one of the notable leaders who preached peace and spearheaded peace meetings that brought hostilities to a halt.

As a charismatic, well-networked educationist and a highly motivated leader who has the people of Uasin Gishu at heart, i am dedicated to promptly and appropriately implement my ten-point manifesto to uplift the standards of living of the residents and transform each and every sector in the county.
