Mt Kenya Governor Speaks About Ruto's Visits to The Region, Alleges Why The Residents Are Not Happy

Nyandarua County governor Francis Kimemia has stated that Deputy President Wiliam Ruto just like any other presidential candidate is free to tour Mt Kenya Region in search of votes ahead of the next general elections.

He however argued that most of the residents of the region are not aware of what Ruto's bottom up economic model entails, adding that it is his (Ruto's) democratic right to use whichever strategy he has to woo voters.

"Ruto is free to come and compete for the votes of the region. Most of us do not understand the model, but let him come and look for votes," said Kimemia.

He went on to add that the only thing the residents are requesting of Ruto is to respect his boss and the regions kingpin President Uhuru Kenyatta, arguing that the signs of disloyalty have not been received well by the constituents across the region.

"The only thing we would want to see is his greater respect for his boss. That resemblance of disloyalty to your boss has not gone well with the people of our region," added Kimemia.

The county boss is among other three governors from the region who endorsed ODM leader Raila Odinga for presidency a week ago.
