Over 50 Jubilee politicians gathered at Ruiru stadium to offer prayers for Deputy President William Samoei Ruto but residents failed to turn up as expected despite massive mobilization efforts.
The convener of the meeting, Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwa, had claimed thousands will turn out in to show solidarity with the Deputy President. He also said the rally is meant to show solidarity with Rift Valley people.
â€œWe want to express our views that we are against the ethnic profiling by the ICC. The court wants to divide us and we will not allow (that),â€ said the MP.
South Imenti MP Kathuri Murungi said the Opposition was welcome to the prayers.
â€œIt isnâ€™t just a Jubilee affair. It is a country affair. Every leader who loves Kenya should be concerned about this case,â€ said Mr Murungi.
However a few of the residents turned, the gathering could only be compared or rivalled by an MCA event, about 3,000 residents turned up. Hawkers who had travelled from Muranga and Nairobi to make capitlize on the meeting were disappointed as the scrambled for attention of a few customers.
URP politicians present included Elgeyo Markwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen and DP William Ruto’s right hand man Kericho senator Charles Keter.
