Newly elected MPs in Nakuru County have pledged to support Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid, because he has remained loyal to President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Led by Bahati’s Kimani Ngunjiri, the MPs said it will be morally and politically wrong to back another presidential candidate in the 2022 General Election and abandon DP Ruto.
“President Kenyatta went through very difficult times in the last four years and throughout he (Ruto) has stuck with the president,” said Mr Ngunjiri as quoted by the Daily Nation.
His remarks were supported by Ms Charity Kathambi (Njoro),Francis Kuria Kimani (Molo), Kuresoi South’s Joseph, Ms Martha Wangari (Gilgil),Kipkosgey Tonui, Mr Samuel Gachobe (Subukia),Mr Moses Cheboi (Kuresoi North), Mr Samuel Arama (Nakuru Town West),Ms Jayne Kihara (Naivasha) and Mr David Gikaria (Nakuru Town East).
They also have called upon the National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga to be a statesman and concede defeat.
