Outraged by constant negative leaks about DP Ruto’s health and also the outright sidelining of URP wing (read Kalenjins) in Jubilee party, Elgeyo Marakwet senator Hon Murkomen has hit out at Statehouse operatives.
Currently security in Kerio Valley is a nightmare to the residents and government seem helpless to restor confidence of the locals, accross in Baringo county locals are feeding on wild fruits after exhausting rats due to the biting hunger (due to prolonged drought). Here is what he was quoted saying at a baraza in his hometown:>>
“We will not be mistreated in Jubilee, we also paid the price like our brothers in TNA by then.
We want to tell our brothers from Mount Kenya and other parts of this country that we will not seat and watch as our people suffer, otherwise we can as well join NASA if our presence is not meaningful to Jubilee.
Anyone trying to undermine our effort and presence in Jubileee will end up loosing everything because D.P William Ruto is also the product of this country and he championed for the formation of Jubileee party.
We are ready to work with anybody including KANU Chairman Gedion Moi and even with my strongest opponent former I/G but let’s not be intimidated, we can join any coalition like NASA, we can as well work with Mashinani and UDM. Respect DP William Ruto. Sen: Murkomen.
DP Ruto who is missing in action for a few days now is alleged to be abroad for personal reasons(medical?) and is rumoured to be India. Other sources indicate the DP is making his way back to the country from India and will be connecting via Istanbul Turkey. He is most likely to make an appearance at a public function tomorrow Sunday.
