Bungoma: Barasa Speaks On His Support For Ruto After Endorsing FORD-Kenya In Senatorial By-election

Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has spoken on his support for president Dr William Ruto, moments after endorsing FORD-Kenya candidate in the upcoming by-election Wafula Wakoli instead of United Democratic Alliance (UDA) aspirant Mwambu Mabonga.

In a Facebook statement, Barasa disclosed why his caliber of politicians in Ruto's government were working tirelessly to ensure Kenya becomes a better nation. According to him, they fought for Kenya's prosperity because they were affectionate towards it, contrary to perception that they had no money or they were idle.

The vocal lawmaker quipped that the prospective success of Dr Ruto would also benefit the entire country. He further urged Kenyans to seek divine intervention for the nation and its leaders including the Head of State.

"We fight for a better Kenya not because we are broke and have nothing better to do but because we deeply love our motherland! When President Ruto succeeds, we all succeed. Pray for him. Pray for Kenya. Be a better human being. Be the change. I wish President Ruto all the best," Said Barasa.

This comes a day after Barasa declared that he does not support former Bumula lawmaker Mabonga in the forthcoming by-election. In his observation, Mabonga, just like Wafula Wamunyinyi who was also in the race on DAP-Kenya ticket had been voted out in the recent general election due to underperformance.

Barasa quipped that the two legislators should take a five-year break in politics in order to do personal introspection on where they went wrong in the previous years.
