The deputy president William Samoei Ruto met the residents of Kieni today to get their support ahead of the general elections. Ruto told the residents that all other governors from the Mt. Kenya region have agreed to support him after ditching Jubilee except Nyeri governor Kanini Kega.
Addressing the residents he warned Nyeri governor for remaining in Jubilee and trying to back the ODM leader Hon Raila Amollo Odinga ahead of the polls telling him that he risks loosing his support from his people saying that Nyeri county is a UDA stronghold.
Ruto has been making several tours in the region ahead of the polls because he understands that the region contains rich votes that can help him secure the presidency. Unfortunately, Kanini Kega has said that he will follow the footsteps of the president Uhuru to back the former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga.
Ruto seems to fear the influence of the area governor and wants him to join his team ahead of polls.
