The chairman of a campaign committee drawn from 20 wards Mwarapayo wa mwachai said that events During Ruto's tour of the region helped them make a decision.
He noted that during the tour, Ruto was accompanied by Achani throughout the visit despite him knowing that there are two Contestants.
He went on to say that even at some point, Lunganzi was heckled in Ruto's presence and nothing was done.
