What Ruto Did That Drove Waluke Away, Explained by a Top CS

The reasons why Sirisia MP John Waluke is no longer seen with DP William Ruto have been revealed by Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa.

After leaving the ODM party, on whose ticket he first won the seat in 2013, Waluke became one of Ruto's pointmen in Western Kenya.

As Ruto's remaining troops moved to his new UDA party, the second-term parliamentarian left Ruto's camp to rejoin the Jubilee Party.

Wamalwa sought to explain why he has been attending ODM leader Raila Odinga's rallies in Western in recent weeks during a rally in Bungoma on Saturday.

He claimed that the leader, like many others in the region, is now satisfied with Ruto's treatment of the region and its leaders, prompting him to join the opposing side.

According to the CS, the MP has also realized that Kenya Kwanza is unsellable in Western Kenya, forcing him to support Raila.

"Mr Waluke was only recently campaigning for the other team, but he was taken aback by the terms Ruto imposed. He's realized that they won't be able to deliver the required 70% "According to NTV, he said this in Bungoma.

He made the remarks in the presence of Waluke, who was accompanying Raila as he campaigned for the presidency in the country.

Area governor Wycliffe Wangamati, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, and Lugari MP Ayub Savula were among the leaders who accompanied Raila.

Ruto, according to Savula, is taking Mudavadi and Wetangula for a ride, which is why he decided to run as a UDA candidate while keeping the two tied to him with the Kenya Kwanza excuse.
