Those in attendance vowed to throw their weight behind DP Ruto’s candidature and asked for support to make a living in the wake of job losses occasioned by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sudi took to social media, sharing that “Among other issues, we discussed at length about the political predicaments the community is currently facing. They expressed their need to liberate themselves from the chains of dynastic rule the region faces.
