Details have emerged that Deputy President William Ruto might not be touring Bomet County during his last presidential rallies owing to the sibling rivalry that might be worse should he take his campaign to the county.
As reported by the Star on Tuesday, Ruto is keen not to endorse anyone between the Chama Cha Mashinani candidate Isaac Rutto, and the United Democratic Alliance, UDA's Hillary Barchok for the county's top seat, both of whom are his close allies.
The duo are rooting Ruto's presidential bid and have declared their unwavering support towards the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp, and thus Ruto seems to keep safe in the race which has been termed as one of the hotly contested in the Rift Valley Region.
This development comes at a time when Rutto and his CCM team have been opposing the six-piece voting pattern calls from the UDA party, saying that it should be 'mix-match' based on the qualities a leader has as well as the agenda they are selling and not based on political parties.
The DP has been reported to be preparing to take his campaigns to Kericho on Sunday few days after Raila Odinga and his Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance toured the county, before planning for Uasin Gishu and Elgeyo Marakwet counties.
Political leaders allied to the UDA party across the Rift Valley region have assured Ruto that the region is locked in his favour, further telling him to traverse the other parts of the country to seek for votes.
According to Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago, the region will vote majorly for the UDA candidates, and that they are wooing the electorates to turn up in large numbers on the voting day.
