Divisions in Ruto's Backyard as Details Emerge on Why West Pokot Governor Skipped Ruto's Visit

Deputy President William Ruto yesterday toured West Pokot where he had gone to open a technical Training Institute, dining hall and a class room at the Kitelakapel Primary and Secondary School.

The governor John Lonyangapuo was consciously missing in what sources told the Nation was driven by his plan to for a new political party, aided by David Pkosing who is the MP for Pokot South who as also not in attendance.

The Nation reports that yesterday in a meeting that was attended by Ruto at the Moi Masol Academy, governor Longangapuo's close ally, nominated MCA Grace Reng'ei's sentiments that the county chief will champion the formation of a new part was met with heckling with Ruto allies calling upon the governor and his associates to join UDA.

Despite Reng'ei maintaining that the part will support Ruto's 2022 presidential ambitions, the plan was dismissed with Ruto revealing that he was going to conduct a meeting with the governor .

"Some leaders in West Pokot have lost direction and now want to form parties for their tribe. I welcome them to UDA. Let's walk together ahead of the 2022 election. They should stop being rude and listen to their votes,” said DP.
