Deputy President William Ruto has been warned against Mt. Kenya Mafia.
Yatta MP Charles Kilonzo has advised Deputy President William Ruto to stop depending on votes from Mt. Kenya region alone for his 2022 presidential bid.
“Mr. Ruto should stop relying on Mt Kenya votes and start forming alliances all over the country if his 2022 presidential bid is to be realized,” he said.
Speaking during a meet-the-people tour at Kithimani market in Yatta, Machakos County, Kilonzo said the region can never be relied on and told Ruto to instead form political parties across the country.
Kilonzo recalled the region promised they would give Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka the presidency during the former president Mwai Kibaki’s regime, but they never kept their promise.
“Mt. Kenya has never been reliable. During Mwai Kibaki’s tenure, they promised our son Kalonzo Musyoka the presidency. A promise that never materialized. Ruto should look for support and alliances in Ukambani, Nyanza, Coast and all over but should not keep lying to himself with the Mt.Kenya promises,” Kilonzo said.
Kilonzo remarks comes following the ongoing fallout in the Jubilee political party suggesting the tussles are strategies to betray the deputy president.
The Deputy President has been making tours across the country to launch Jubilee manifesto at the same time taking the opportunity to sell his agenda as a 2022 presidential aspirant.
