Nominated Senator Paul Njoroge has sent out a hard-hitting message to Deputy President William Ruto ahead of the August 8 general election.

The Jubilee senator has now claimed that DP Ruto is locking out politicians from the Central and Rift Valley regions whom he sees as his enemies.

While addressing the press in Naivasha, Njoroge has hit out on Ruto’s high-handedness on those he considers as a threat to his chances of being the President in 2022.

Njoroge also stated that Central Kenya will reconsider its decision to support Ruto’s presidential bid come 2022.

The senator, who represents people with disabilities in Parliament, went hard on his statement adding that the DP was using government agencies to rile those opposed to his style of leadership.

"We saw that senior politicians from Central and Rift Valley who are opposed to Ruto were rigged out of the just concluded Jubilee primaries as part of the ongoing plan," said Njoroge.

Njoroge  termed the inclusion of his name in a list of leaders with integrity issues as a move lock out some leaders from vying in the general elections.

The controversial senator is vying for the Nakuru governor seat under the KANU party.

He is remembered for being involved in a gun drama with former VIVO Energy CEO turned Sonko’s running mate Polycarp Igathe whom he tried stopping from taking assets from a petrol station he owned.
