Ruto's Close Ally Mwenesi Buries Mother Days After Missing Nomination Slot in UDA for MP Position

President William Ruto's key associate Jackline Mwenesi of United Democratic Alliance (UDA), who doubles as UDA Vihiga County co-ordinator laid her mother, Lydia Ambetsa, to rest yesterday in Vihiga.

The late Lydia Ambetsa's health conditions worsened last month after learning that her daughter, Jackline Mwenesi, who had been poised for the Member of Parliament nomination position missed the coveted post.

She was later admitted to county hospital where she died while undergoing treatment.

Mrs Mwenesi bolted out of Vihiga women representative contest in favour of Musalia Mudavadi's Amani National Congress (ANC) party candidate Beatrice Adagala who emerged victorious in August battle.

Having been worked around the clock in drumming support for Ruto's bid especially in Vihiga County, Mwenesi has remained hopefully to secure bigger chunk in Ruto's cabinet despite missing the party nomination slot.

The ruling UDA party secured 5 slots for nominated MPs as Mwenesi came at the 6th position missing the chance by a whisker.
