Controversial business woman-cum-politician Tabitha Karanja popularly known as Keroche has been declared the winner of the Nakuru County Senator's position.

Speaking after being declared the winner, Keroche thanked the residents of Nakuru for loving her so much that she got triple the votes of her closest competitor.

"I want to thank all those who voted for me and those who didn't. I will serve you equally and diligently. I am going to champion new bills in the Senate. I will champion democracy," Keroche said.
