In Bomet County, with 337 out of 728 polling stations (36.6%) reporting incumbent governor Isaac Rutto of Chama Cha Maendeleo (CCM) trails Dr Joyce Laboso of Jubilee Party in the gubernatorial race.

Dr Laboso, the current MP for Sotik, currently has a large lead with 78,949 votes (68.96%), while Isaac Rutto has 35,542 votes (31.04%).

If the numbers hold up, Dr Laboso could be poised to become one of the first Kenyan women governors in history.
