Nyeri Town Member of Parliament, Ngunjiri Wambugu who is considered as a staunch supporter of President Uhuru Kenyatta has been Deputy President William Ruto's fierce critic from Mount Kenya region.

Wambugu is among the Mount Kenya leaders who were seen to champion for the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga's presidential bid after the handshake between Uhuru and Raila.

On Tuesday, September 21, the outspoken MP appeared to soften his stance against Ruto and extended an olive branch to the second in command by claiming that the Mt Kenya region is ready to welcome him back.

"However, we will watch him and see whether he can be trusted, and if he can, we are happy to have him join us in considering what's in it for us as a region before we vote for whichever candidate, which has been my consistent message about 2022," said Wambugu.
