It has been reported that the lawmakers resolved to support deputy president William Ruto ahead of 2022, but set out irreducible minimums that the DP must meet to get their support.
The lawmakers decided a meeting must be held with Ruto within the next 2 weeks, where the DP must assure them the position Mt Kenya region will get in his government if they back his (Ruto) quest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
