Embakasi East Member of Parliament Hon Babu Owino, who is among the top critics of Deputy President Dr William Ruto and a die-hard ally to the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga, has warned Mt Kenya residents against election the second in command to presidency next year.
Speaking during the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's campaign rally at Karatina town, Babu urged the people from the mountain region to elect the ODM boss as the next president to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, because he is the only sure bet who can serve for even one term and support a Mt Kenya candidate to succeed him.
While the Deputy President Dr William Ruto, will not consider supporting back a Mt Kenya for the top seat again, and he might emulate the habit of the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni who is a close friend to him. "Mkichagua Baba (Raila) atafanya tu miaka tano na arudishe kiti kwenu. Lakini mkipatia yule rafiki ya Museveni hamtawai ona hio kiti Tena." He said.
