Moses Kuria speaks on Mt. Kenya abandoning DP Ruto in 2022

Kuria speaks on rebellion in Jubilee

Gatundu South legislator Moses Kuria has delved into the tricky issue by reassuring the DP of the region’s support in 2022.

Addressing mourners at the burial of former Belgut legislator Erick Keter, Kuria stated that “some people are peddling wild claims that we are taking Ruto for a ride. The succession is an assured cheque.”

Ruto who was also at the event called for unity among the region leaders with signs of rebellion from the region.

Rebellion played out during yesterday’s elections for the Council of Governors’ chair when Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago expressed interest to challenge his Kwale counterpart Salim Mvurya.

Mvurya had been endorsed by Jubilee party leadership at a meeting held at State House.

With many leaders declaring their interest in the presidency in 2022, Ruto will be banking on the support from the populous region to win the race.

Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo was among the first politicians to warn DP Ruto that support from the region is not guaranteed.

Shortly afterwards, former nominated senator Paul Njoroge warned Ruto that he would not enjoy automatic support from the region.

Since then, Jubilee union led by  the president and his deputy characterised by suspicion, prompting Jubilee leaders from the mount Kenya region to constantly assure the DP of their support.
