Huge Blow To The Deputy President As Mt. Kenya Elected MPs Skip His Meeting

As the election period nears, political parties and leaders are busy organising themselves for the upcoming general election.

The presidential elections attracts two main political leaders that to the effort being made it's a do or die between president Uhuru's right man Raila Odinga and the deputy president William Ruto.

Since the last elections Ruto's Mt. Kenya move has been very tremedious and successful until late that things seems to have changed against him.

The deputy president could attract a large crowd and a large number of elected legislatures even after they had parted ways with the president in 2018 after the handshake.

With the entry of opposition chief Raila Odinga into the Mountains, things seems to have changed against the deputy president William Ruto.

Yesterday the deputy president held a meeting at his Karen official residence where the United Democratic Movement aspirants drawn from Nyeri, Laikipia, Meru and Tharaka_Nithi attended. Under such circumstances the deputy would have more than 15 elected legislatures allied to the hustler Nation would have attended.

But surprisingly enough, only six legislators from Mt. Kenya showed up for the meeting. They includes: Rahab Mukami, Rigathi Gachagua, Kimani Ichungwa, Patrick Mariru, George Murugura and Halima Muchoka.

This information was seen on the deputy president official tweet account as linked below.
