President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced that he will soon be touring the Rift Valley region which is deputy president William Ruto's stronghold. The duo which clinched the top seats in the republic in 2013 and 2017 have been at loggerheads in recent times, with president Kenyatta accusing his deputy of focusing on politics and not development.
Ruto's men in the Rift Valley including Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen has responded to Kenyatta's plan to tour the region. According to Kipchumba, the region has been neglected in terms of development since the time the two leaders started falling apart.
The president made a tour to the Nyanza region to open development projects during the Madaraka Day Celebrations. The Rift leaders now say they have so many questions to the president concerning stalled projects like the controversial Arror and Kimwarer Dams projects.
Ruto has also indicated that he is ready to accompany the president in his tour, with many now waiting to see how the two will relate.
The region is faced with kingpin competition between Baringo senator Gideon Moi and the deputy president.
