Addressing the media at his Nairobi office, Kakamega county boss affirmed that he had not ditched Raila's Azimio to join Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance. He revealed that details of his meeting with the head of state on Sunday was to prepare for Ruto's planned two-day visit in the county to officiate various projects in the county.
"The reason why I met the head of state Dr William Ruto is to prepare for the visit that he is coming in Kakamega on the 8th and 9th of this month. And quite a number of projects that I thought it is important that I have a conversation with him prior to his visit. And we had a meeting Raila Odinga as Azimio governors and agreed that we are not going to be gagged from holding talks with the president. Kakamega people achieve more when we collaborate with the government" said Barasa.
While meeting the head of state on Sunday, Barasa was accompanied by Boni Khalwale (senator) among other elected leaders from the county.
