New details have emerged disclosing how the Deputy President William Samoei Ruto dropped a hint that indicated a possibility of making the Mathira Constituency Member of Parliament Rigathi Gachagua his running mate. However, the the hint may have indicated that DP Ruto may hand Gachagua a very senior role in government if they will win the next year's general election. In his speeches yesterday as he toured Nyeri County, the Deputy President William Ruto acknowledged Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua in various occasions. The DP was heard telling the residents of Nyeri, "Allow your MP who to join me in the next stage and help me in work. Will you allow him to help me get the votes?"
The DP Ruto's sentiments were also echoed by a number of politicians who had accompanied the Deputy President during his campaign in Nyeri County. UDA's Nyeri tour comes a week after Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Amolo Odinga toured this part of Mt Kenya Region.
Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa was also heard telling the residents of Nyeri County to release Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua to go hunt for DP Ruto's presidential votes. Jumwa said these words while at Kieni. These sentiments were also reiterated by Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro.
This is the very first time the Deputy President William Ruto together with his team have given a hint of a possible running mate. This comes as MP Rigathi Gachagua emerges to be a key asset for the Deputy President William Ruto. This is despite Gachagua's fall-out with the president Uhuru Kenyatta.
