Samuel Poghisio Emerges With a Bold Night Message to Ruto a Day After Kalonzo Endorsed Raila's Bid

West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio now argues that Deputy President William Ruto is still young to lead the country, and that he should wait for the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga to serve Kenyans.

Through his Twitter account in a late night message on Sunday, Poghisio stated that Raila has more experience for the top seat compared to Ruto, which puts him on top of the August presidential contenders.

Reacting to Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka's move to step down in favour of Raila's State House bid, the Majority leader in the Senate stated that the former vice presidnet has proved him patriotism and statesmanship for the sake of the country.

"Baba the fifth. This is a befitting name for RAO. William Ruto can still wait a few years to earn the title “Baba.” It comes with age and experience and a level of trust. Kalonzo is a statesman and understands what has to be achieved here first. It’s a unity of purpose for Country," he tweeted.

His sentiments comes a day after Raila was endorsed by delegates from more than 25 political parties whose secretary generals signed the Azimio coalition agreement at KICC.

This happened before proceeding to Jacaranda Grounds were Kalonzo endorsed Raila by declaring 'Raila Tosha,' a political development he stated was propelled by President Uhuru Kenyatta who was also in attendance.
