Allies of Deputy President William Ruto have ramped up their efforts to unseat incumbent Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter.
They have asked supporters of the United Democratic Alliance to vote against the outspoken MP in the constituency's UDA primaries on Tuesday.
On March 2, Mr. Keter joined the DP Ruto-led UDA party. The politician, who was viewed as opposing the deputy president, went to the UDA party headquarters in Nairobi to ask for permission to participate in the party primaries.
Those who criticize Dr. Ruto in the Rift Valley, according to the politicians, should not be allowed to run for government.
They singled out Mr Keter, declaring him unwelcome in the UDA party since he was a member of the Azimio la Umoja-OKA party. They asked voters to elect a leader who will cooperate with the DP.
Mr Keter was also accused by the legislators for what they called poor development in Nandi Hills. They said that instead of attending to his constituency, the MP spent all of his time criticising and undermining Dr Ruto.
