Osoro was part of a delegation of four MPs who accompanied DP Ruto to two different rallies in Nyamira County.

He spoke at Gekano Parish on Saturday afternoon before the DP addressed the church congregation where he had gone to raise funds.

He rallied the public behind the DP, stating that the community stands to gain immensely from the wealth that DP Ruto has ammasd.

"He has organised himself and you know polls is about eating well’(sic), we don't milk a bull, we go for a heifer and this is the person who can give you enough milk," the MP said.

Ruto who has been on a tour of the Nyamira county was the chief guest at a harambee in Tente SDA Church where he donated Sh. 1.5 million.
