Boost For Ruto After Details Emerge of Night Long Meeting

According to Citizen TV, over 40 Mps from Mt Kenya region held a secretive meeting at Mathira Mp Rigathi Gachagua's home Saturday night to discuss Mt Kenya's political stand ahead of the 2022 general election.

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.

Citizen TV has reported that the lawmakers are keen on getting either the running mate slot, or the Prime minister slot if BBI sails through.

The lawmakers also want Ruto's government to tackle economic issues affecting Mt Kenya region if he wins the election.
