Residents of Nandi County have turned up in large numbers to receive Deputy President William Ruto who is on a visit of the region. His visit comes barely three days after almost fourty Country assemblies overwhelmingly endored the building bridges initiative BBI.
Nandi County became the third county to reject the Building Bridges Initiative Bill a region believed to be his stronghold. Yesterday President Uhuru Kenyatta held a consultative meeting at state house with Raila, Mudavadi, Kalanzo, Wetangula and Gedion Moi to thank the MCAs for a job well done after endorsing the Bill.
Ruto’s visit is aimed at solidifying his bid for 2022 in the region and thanks the Nandi People for showing showing support by rejecting the Bill. There have been rumors doing rounds that Ruto is in talk with several high profile leaders from the region to support him for his bid for 2022 by forming a coalition that would be beneficial to both parties.
