Uasin Gishu: Senator Kamar Finally Endorses Dp Ruto's 2022 Bid

Uasin Gishu senator Prof Margaret Kamar has finally come out to endorse deputy president Dr William Ruto's 2022 presidential bid.

Prof Kamar who was speaking at a funeral of Moiben constituency Member of Parliament Silas Tiren's mother, Susana Kobilo on Saturday noted that political leaders from Rift Valley should forge for a unified camp in a bid to allow Dr Ruto's gain victory in the upcoming State House race.

The scholar-cum-politician also called on the politicians to desist from engaging in activities that could disparage unity and bring chaos as well as divisions because the move could water down peace that has been gained.

Further, she urged them to be wise in their undertakings if they wanted the second in command to succeed the incumbent president Uhuru Kenyatta without qualms.

"Forge for a united front so that your son (Dr William Ruto) who is gunning for the top seat succeeds," Prof Kamar said in Kalenjin dialect.

Besides the vocal senator, other leaders who were present during the funeral include Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago and his Elgeyo Marakwet counterpart Alex Tolgos, senator Kipchumba Murkomen, MPs Joshua Kutuny (Cherangany), Daniel Rono (Keiyo South) and Oscar Sudi (Kapseret) among others.

The politicians had a common rallying call to the electorate and their colleagues from the region, whereby they urged them to vote overwhelmingly for Dr Ruto's in 2022 presidential election.

This is good news to deputy president Dr William Ruto because Prof Kamar, who had joined Kieleweke faction of the ruling party Jubilee which supports Uhuru but criticizes and fights the DP politicians could rejoin Tanga Tanga camp soon. The deputy president could gain a formidable footsoldier from his home-county who would help in canvassing support for his bid.
