Deputy President William Ruto has yet again received another blow after a section of his allies allegedly dump him for ODM. The leaders are from western region and it is reported that they have changed their minds and supported Raila Odinga's presidential bid.
Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and MPs Malulu Injendi (Malava), Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo) and Benard Shinali (Ikolomani) are said to have agreed to support Raila, this is according to a statement by the standard newspaper.
Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka is said to be eying for Bungoma gubernatorial seat again. DP Ruto began his western tour today and will be visiting Busia and Kakamega counties this weekend.
Although Busia is a strong hold of the former prime minister Raila Odinga, William Ruto is expected to be received heroically when he land there on Saturday. DP Ruto is expected to empower the small scale traders and sell his bottom up economic model. What is your view on this matter? Kindly share your views below.
