Ruto Allies Claim There is a Plan by Kieleweke Leaders to Cause Chaos During The DP's Tour in Nyeri

United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party officials and members from Nyeri County have alleged that there is a plan by a section of Kieleweke MPs and ODM supporters to disrupt and cause chaos during Deputy President William Ruto's tour across the county this weekend.

The leaders who spoke to TV 47 on Friday argued that they have been informed of the plan, and do call upon the relevant authorities to step in and allow the DP to hold his rally peacefully.

"I request those who are making arrangements to disrupt Ruto's visit and specifically Kieleweke and ODM to stop. Ruto is a leader just like Raila who was in the county few days ago, and there was no chaos and violence witnessed. They should therefore allow the DP to sell his agenda by displaying political tolerance and maturity," said Wahome Mwangi who serves as the UDA's Nyeri coordinator.

The UDA supporters revealed that Ruto's popularity across the county had increased immensely in the past few months, a move that they alleged is worrying the county leaders supporting Raila's bid.

According to Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, the UDA brigade are yet to start their campaigns, and the recent tours across the country were just 'mic testing.'
