Ruto Suffers A Huge Blow As Mount Kenya Residents And MP Rejects His Plan

Today, the president of this country Dr William Ruto has reportedly suffured his first blow from the Mount Kenya region which has been his stronghold for a long time. As reported by the, the residents of Gatundu north together with their member of parliament have rejected Ruto's plan to construct another dam in the area.

According to this publication, the residents who had turned up in large numbers for the public participation today made this rejection saying that the project adds no benefit to them as the area already has another completed dam. This dam is Ndarugo dam which was expected to be launched by president William Ruto and his deputy hon Rigathi Gachagua in the next few weeks. This project is estimated to be Kshs 13B.

"These residents have left their businesses to declare that they do not want a dam because there is another dam just close to the proposed one and, secondly, because there is a very large land in a nearby forest that should be used instead of displacing residents," Said the member of parliament for Gatundu north.
