Deputy president William Ruto and his entourage has today visited Kieni constituency to woo voters of the region to support his hustler nation movement and his 2022 presidential bid. Speaking during the meeting, former Kiambu county governor Ferdinand Waititu who accompanied DP Ruto said the people of Mt Kenya region will not vote for someone because he has been endorsed by the president.
In a video that has been shared online, the crowd began by shouting Waititu's name demanding him to address them. When he took the podium, Waititu has used pure Kikuyu language to woo the Kieni constituency residents to rally behind DP Ruto.
"For sure we will not vote for anyone because the president has said so. We have planned ourselves and we are in the United Democratic Alliance party UDA," Waititu said.
The crowd bursted into cheers immediately after Waititu's speech.
Earlier on, legislators from the Mt Kenya region who accompanied DP Ruto in the first day of his three day visit like the kiharu member of Parliament Hon Ndindi Nyoro told the residents to camp the UDA party.
