Ruto ordered not set foot in Kiambu

By Mercy Imali

MPs against Deputy President Willam Ruto’s 2022 bid have instructed him not to set foot in Kiambu County unless he is accompanied by his boss Uhuru Kenyatta. They further called on the DP to quit his job if he cannot stop the 2022 presidential election campaigns.

The lawmakers heavily criticized the DP for sneaking into Uhuru’s backyard instead of being bold enough to ask for his boss’ blessings.

“You are not welcome in this county unless you are accompanied by Uhuru,” said former MP George Nyanja. The former MP asked: “How can someone go to another person’s home without his knowledge?”

He took a swipe at the DP for crisscrossing the country for church fundraisers. He instead asked him to prove his seriousness to work for God by rebuilding churches that were destroyed during the 2007 post-election violence.

“Kiambaa church was burnt during the post-election violence. People died inside and others were left with permanent scars, let the DP build that if he is honest about his church fundraisers,” he said.

Nyanja spoke in Githunguri.

Elsewhere in Nairobi, jubilee politicians led by Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny said Ruto must respect his boss and the Jubilee manifesto.

He added that this should include full support of the Big Four agenda meant to improve the lives of millions of Kenyans.

“It is sad that some of those people whom we went into the last elections together with the promise of building the nation and improving the lives of Kenyans are now pushing individual interests,” former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru, who accompanied Kutuny, said.

They spoke when they toured Kasarani constituency to view the development projects initiated by the constituency development fund.

“Kenyans cannot access good health, transportation or education because some people have stolen the funds and are now using them to campaign,” Kiambu deputy governor James Nyoro said.
