Many who know Amb Julius Bitok can testify that he is a humble God fearing man who loves interacting with people from all walks of life.Amb Julius Bitok’s story is one from grass to grace.He comes from a very humble background and when he was a young he would often sell eggs during the weekends.Life wasn’t a bed of roses for him as he walked barefoot most of his childhood.Education was an escape for him from the harsh realities of life.
Mr Bitok loved to read and this helped him escape hoping one day to change his life. For this reason Amb Julius Bitok developed a deep compassion and soft spot for children.It is because of this that he set up his foundation which has supported needy students for the last 20years.Amb Julius Bitok set up his foundation when he was a struggling teacher.He would use his salary to sponsor the students.It is because of his humility and good heart that God would uplift him up to be an ambassador 20years later.
While in his 20s Amb Julius Bitok hustled alot.He did every job he could find and teach at the same time to support the foundation and to keep the needy students in school.It is because of this that he can relate deeply to the hardships and hustlers living in Uasingishu county.As Mr Bitok continued teaching he took on more students in his foundation and as of today he has educated more than 1000 students.Many were overjoyed when he was appointed as Kenya’s ambassador to Pakistan as they knew he would help the people of Uasingishu and true to his word he did.
Mr Bitok sought large and small scale farmers from Uasingishu when he was first appointed as ambassador and trained them on how to plant,harvest and package agricultural products that were eventually exported to Pakistan.As of today he has exported 100billion worth of agricultural produce from Uasingishu county.Amb Julius Bitok has a history of supporting and uplifting local residents of Uasingishu county once he gets into any position of power.He has proven this over and over again.We need to chose a leader with such a history.He has a history of performing and is a results oriented leader something that Uasingishu county needs.He ensures service delivery and it is because of this reason that he was awarded an MBS and a humanitarian award for his good work.He is most likely to duplicate this trait once appointed governor.
He has a history of kindness and compassion that can be traced 20years ago when he was a teacher.As many rush to show acts of kindness because of elections he has been doing this for the last 20years.He has a history of good leadership due to his leadership skills. Pakistan was able to surpass Britain as Kenya’s largest importer of agricultural products something that left many experts in disbelief.If he can deliver in this capacity he can deliver as Uasingishu’s next governor.He has a history of uplifting members of the local community when in a position of power.When most people attain power they tend to forget members of the community.Mr Bitok has proven he doesn’t fall in that category.Once appointed Kenya’s ambassador to Pakistan he used that opportunity to empower more than 50,000 farmers in Uasingishu.
Unlike many candidates who are hungry and looking for employment through running for a seat.Mr Bitok is still the ambassador to Pakistan proving that his intentions are honest and pure. He is not running for any selfish gain but to help and uplift the people of Uasingishu county.Mr Bitok is a servant leader because he has a history of servant leadership.Before he became ambassador he sat down with farmers and agricultural stakeholders in Uasingishu and listened to their plea which led him to export goods from them to Pakistan.Mr Bitok has a listening ear and we can see that once he becomes governor he will employ this strategy as well.Amb Julius Bitok has promised to change the county when voted for.
