While meeting OKA leaders on Thursday, mount Kenya foundation likened the votes from the region to a beautiful girl with many suitors.

The foundation has already met all the presidential aspirants seeking to climb the Mountain except the deputy president William Ruto.

Now today, the DP while addressing residents in Laikipia welcomed the former Prime minister Raila Odinga and one kenya Alliance leaders to the mountain.

Ruto mocked his competitors for coming to central after him and president Uhuru have developed the region.

"While you were away, we build roads, while you were away we connected the region with electricity" said Ruto.

In his tour, Ruto was accompanied by mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua who asked Ruto to welcome his competitors to the region as a host.

Other Leaders who accompanied Ruto include Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, Laikipia Senator Johnn kinywa and Laikipia West mp partrick Mariru.

Nevertheless, there was an ugly incident when Ruto's Entourage reached Nyahururu whereby the crowd started heckling senator John and Hon Mariru.

The two were shouted down the moment they tried to address the gathering to the disappointment of the DP.

The incident comes one day after the husband to kajiado east MP Perris Tobiko complained about Ruto's meeting that was held in his property without permission.
