A section of leaders from Kiambu County, and who are allied to Jubilee and Kanu parties that supported the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga during the August 9th polls,have declared support to president William Ruto's government.
In a press briefing on Thursday, the leaders led by Former Kiambu Governor James Nyoro said that they will be rallying behind Ruto and the Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, further urging the two to convene a meeting with leaders from Kiambu and who lost in the August polls.
"We acknowledge that it is time to develop and also transform this nation especially our economy for the benefit of our people. As the President and his deputy continue to transform the country we assure them of our sincere loyalty."
The leaders include Nyoro, David Ngari, Damaris Waiganjo, Joyce Ngugi all these from Jubilee and Kanu's Stephen Kigathi.
Kigathi and Waiganjo said that the 'losers' of the August polls will join in to support the building of the nation, adding that Kiambu County has never been in opposition, and that was the main reason they are joining the government of the day.
Their moves comes days after other Jubilee leaders from Nyandarua County also drummed their support to Ruto's government when he toured the county for a thanksgiving Sunday service.
