Wetangula's Brother Makes Big Decision About Ruto After Azimio Blocked Him From Vying For Governor

Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi is among the latest leaders from the Western Kenya region who have now declared readiness to support the government.

The leader was among Luhya leaders who on Tuesday pledged readiness to work with President William Ruto, after his win in August.

He accompanied a team of leaders, led by Lugari MP Nabii Nabwera, which said that it will cooperate with the government and help it realize it's goals.

But it at the same time pointed out that it will not hesitate to criticize Ruto if it feels he is doing the wrong thing and leading the country astray.

"We will not hesitate to point out the failures of the government if we feel the government is not playing its role to our expectation," they said.

The leaders made the remarks while addressing the press at Hunters Paradise in Bungoma town.

By joining the leaders agreeing to work with Ruto, Wanyonyi emulates his brother Moses Wetangula, now the National Assembly Speaker.

The move comes only months after he was denied the chance to vie for Nairobi governor on the Azimio ticket, after managing to secure the ODM nod.

The privilege was handed to former Nairobi Deputy Governor Polycarp Igathe, who proceeded to lose to Johnson Sakaja, also from Western Kenya.
