The outspoken lawmaker appeared to reach out to the second-in-command, claiming that the Mt Kenya region is ready to welcome him back.
Wambugu claimed that the DP's change of heart influenced his decision to oppose Ruto's presidency.The legislator argued that the Mt Kenya region will only support his bid if he assures the mountain's people that he will advocate for their interests in his government.Wambugu insisted that his decision to support or oppose a candidate is motivated by personal interests rather than political obligations. His comments were in response to a statement made by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who he claims was at the forefront of advocating for the repayment of political debts.
"I am glad he (Kuria) finally recognizes politics is about interests and votes must be negotiated for," he said.
"However, he must recognize that he spent the last three years as a proponent of 'we owe Ruto and will elect him unconditionally,' so he must appreciate that some of us find his recent change of heart welcome," Wambugu added.
