Tharaka Nithi Governor Muthomi Njuki has reiterated that the Mount Kenya Region is behind Deputy President William Ruto's presidential bid ahead of the August polls.
Speaking in Tharaka on Saturday, Njuki said that the bottom-up economic model which is being propelled by the DP and leaders allied to the Kenya Kwanza Alliance resonates with the people, and is the solution that will solve the issues affecting Kenyans after August.
The first term governor who is seeking re-election in the August polls also argued that the DP is the only leader who has the interests of the Mt Kenya region at heart, and there is no doubt that they will support him since he is giving them hope at a time when the economic status of the county is unbearable.
"As leaders in Kenya Kwanza Alliance, we are standing with Ruto because he is our leader, and our plan to uplift Kenyans from the bottom to up, and empower them is what will ensure we have a county and a country which we are all proud of."
The residents echoed him saying that the DP has never given them an excuse or a reason they should not support him.
Two weeks ago whoever, a section of the residents had threatened to ditch Ruto's camp after their senator Professor Kithure Kindiki lost the running mate slot to Rigathi Gachagua, but after Kindiki gave a statement that he will remain a loyal member of the UDA Party, the residents also affirmed their loyalty to the DP's party.
