Ruto Accused of lying Kenyans To Join Opposition Side As Tallying Gets Hotter

The race for president is becoming more heated as the conflict between the two major political parties, Kenya Kwanza and Azimio, intensifies. William Ruto, the Second in Command, and Raila Odinga, President Uhuru Kenyatta's rivals, are eager to unseat him as the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is almost ready to make its final decision on who would be the country's fifth president.

DP Ruto and Raila Odinga are competing for the presidency based on the current provisional election results. And now, former Kieni MP Hon. Kanini Kega claims that Deputy President William Ruto lied to Mount Kenya voters who, according to preliminary results, supported Raila Odinga with a majority of the vote.

"William Ruto and Rigathi Gachagua you lied to our people and now they will be in the opposition for the next 5 years!" Hon Kanini Kega wrote on his Facebook page.

Hon Kega lost his seat to UDA candidate Hon Chieni Njoroge. He conceded defeat yesterday and thank the people of Kieni for the chance they had given him to serve them for the past ten years.
