Jubilee Party Vice Chairman, David Murathe, has interestingly conceded that Deputy President William Ruto is the new Mt Kenya political head honcho kingpin if you may.
Mt Kenya, which is going to be a political battleground for all presidential wannabe in 2022, has almost 6,000,000 electors, and as per Murathe, Ruto is in control over the mountain.
He said Ruto’s plan to clinch the mountain began in 2017, where he rigged out strong Mt Kenya leaders during the Jubilee Party nominations.
Murathe’s claims were excused by Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua, who said that they lost in the primaries fairly and that Ruto is unfairly faulted for their troubles.
“If they were as strong as claimed, why did they lose?
“We have had by-elections where Jubilee has lost in five places, so why do they feel that party is strong?” Gachagua, who is DP Ruto’s point man in the Mt Kenya region asked.
