Ruto in Limbo as Hundreds of Bungoma Supporters Threaten to Join Rival Parties if He Doesn't Step In

Hundreds of Deputy President William Ruto's supporters from Kabuchai Constituency in Bungoma County have threatened to leave UDA and join other rival parties if he does not step in and solve the leadership wrangles within the Bungoma Chapter.

Ruto who visited Bungoma a week ago welcomed Ford Kenya's MP Majimbo Kalasinga who further revealed that the DP had supported him during the by-elections despite UDA having its candidate, Evans Kaikai.

Ruto's move has elicited mixed reactions from the leaders across the constituency who wondered the direction Ruto had take, arguing that he had sidelined them by failing to recognize their parliamentary aspirant Mr Kaikai.

"No Kakai, No UDA. We call upon Deputy President William Ruto to publicly announce who he is grooming to be the MP in this constituency in 2022. He has not yet called those members from Jubilee who supported Kaikai in the by-election. How will he recognize us in UDA if he has failed to do it before" said UDA's Kabuchai Chairman Francis Namusasi and Zebedee Amos, a supporter.

They added that if Ruto does not heed to their call and clear the air on his recent move, they will not hesitate to join ODM, Ford or ANC.
