On Friday, Baringo County Woman Representative Gladys Tungo distributed a number of number of Hustler Nation related equipment to several women and youth groups from Baringo County, sparking speculations on whether the Kanu woman MP had ditched his boss Gideon Moi for Ruto's hustler movement.
Among the materials distributed by Tungo at Kabarnet to various groups included Water tanks, Carwash machines, Wheelbarrows, ballast breaking tools and fishing nets.
But speaking on Friday evening, Tungo distanced herself from the claims that she had embraced Ruto's wheelbarrow movement, saying her deeds did not in any way meant to popularize anybody or UDA party which has a wheelbarrow as its symbol.
"It doesn't mean that if there are people who have associated themselves with the wheelbarrows, then nobody other than them will use these tools. My distribution did not in any way meant I was campaigning for any political faction or party. I gave pout the wheelbarrows because I am their mother," stated Tungo.
She however added that she will not back off in giving out wheelbarrow donations to those who asks for it, saying the empowerment tools will help better the lives of many in Baringo.
"People will talk online and political platforms but let me assure those who thinks that I am planning to ditch Gideon Moi's Kanu party that I will solidly remain in Kanu. We are the founding party and we will continue giving birth to other parties...Kanu has given birth to many parties and recently I heard it gave birth to a small child called UDA but the mother party will still remain," she added.
She insisted on the need for other parties to respect Kanu, saying that was the founding party. "If they call and tell us they need a wheelbarrow, we will deliver the tools to them but we will never use wheelbarrow to brainwash them" .
