Governor James Ongwae, Woman Rep Janet Ongera, Senator Sam Ongeri, and Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati are among Ruto's main political rivals in the region.
Local leaders have defected to various political parties, prompting the visit. It also comes ahead of ODM leader Raila Odinga's convention this Friday in Kasarani, Nairobi, where he is expected to officially launch his presidential campaign in 2022.
South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro confirmed Ruto's visit, saying everything is in place for the region's empowerment programs.
Ruto will be welcomed in Bobasi by aspiring politician Lukas Mogoa, and in Nyaribari Masaba by UDA aspiring politician Ben Momanyi.
The DP will be hosted by Kisii County UDA Coordinator Japheth Nyakundi and Kitutu Chache North parliamentary candidate Ogamba Migosi. Migosi ran on the ODM ticket in 2017 and finished third.
