On Saturday, Deputy president William Ruto and his brigade stormed Nyahururu, Laikipia county to drum up support for the second in command's Presidential ambitions.
Addressing locals, Mathira Mp Rigathi Gachagua scoffed at Mount Kenya Foundation, claiming the tycoons are plotting on how to auction their votes to ODM leader Raila Odinga.
"There are some tycoons meeting in hotels in Nairobi planning on how to auction our votes (Mt Kenya) to that guy of riddles (Raila).We want to tell those tycoons to keep their wealth, Lands, Big shops and their monies. Let them know we are not their properties." Gachagua stated.
"Those questioning Ruto's popularity in Mt Kenya should know he's the man to beat here." added the lawmaker.
On Friday while in Kajiado, DP Ruto also dismissed Mount Kenya Foundation activities, saying the tycoons are interested on who becomes the President in 2022 for the sake of their wealth.
The DP said he'll not subject himself to interviews with tycoons , adding he would tour the country and ask the support of ordinary Kenyans.
