DP Ruto’s unexpected message causes panic in Isaac Ruto’s Chama Cha Mashinani camp
The sentiments come shortly after the Gideon Moi led KANU pledged support for President Uhuru Kenyatta’s re-election in August polls.
Speaking on his tour Friday tour in Sotik to commission the repayment of dairy farmers who lost their animals in the now defunct Kenya Cooperative Creameries (KCC) 20 years ago, said the governor's attempt to stop all projects by the national government in Bomet should be a concern to everyone as the country heads to the August general election.
Addressing a mammoth full crowd in governor Ruto’s Chama Cha Mashinani backyard, DP Ruto cited construction of a university in Bomet town, which Governor Ruto has been fighting fiercely through court cases.
"Ruto moved to court to jeopardise all development projects the national government tried to roll out in Bomet County. This is unacceptable and he should be held accountable and stopped," said the DP.
He also tore into the governor's new political outfit, saying it was a ploy to cause division within the Kalenjin community.
"The same person who refused to sign for medical equipment to be supplied to local hospitals is now busy sowing discord, but I want to assure him that the day of reckoning will be in August when the country goes to the polls," DPRuto said.
He said it was shocking that the governor was running up and down inciting locals against Itare Dam water project.
While in Eldoret, the DP warned Kalenjin politicians in the North Rift against perpetuating ethnicity for political mileage.
"I do not want to hear anybody asking for votes saying he is a Nandi, Marakwet, Keiyo or any other community. I will not allow that and the electorate are at liberty to elect any aspirant they deem fit. As the Kalenjin nation we are one family," Ruto said.
