Deputy President William Samoei Ruto has today, 7th April brokered another political consensus between two parliamentary aspirants in Trans-Nzoia County at his official residence in Karen, Nairobi County.

The DP held a meeting between Hon Jonas Kuko and his rival Hon Benard Wambwa who were both interested in the United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA) ticket for the Saboti parliamentary seat in Trans Nzoia County. In the meeting, Jonas Kuko who was seeking to make a third stab at the seat shelved his ambitions and resolved to support Wambwa who is a Member of the Trans Nzoia County Assembly representing Tuwani Ward.

"Saboti Constituency Kenya Kwanza leaders have resolved to support Mr Bernard Wambwa (UDA) for the seat. We salute Mr Jonas Kuko for deferring his bid. Present were MPs Robert Pukose, Rigathi Gachagua, Kimani Ichung’wa and Rahab Mukami." posted Ruto on his social media page.

The Saboti Constituency Parliamentary seat is currently held by Hon Caleb Amisi who was elected on an ODM ticket in the 2017 general elections. He is also seeking to defend his seat in August on the same party.
