Elgeyo Marakwet Senator has accused Bomet Governor of disrespecting Deputy President William Ruto. The spat between the two leaders escalated over the weekend where governor Rutto accused the DP sponsoring chaos in the south rift to kill development of the region.
Rutto also accused Ruto of being a ‘roaming dictator’ bad for the country even as the DP position himself for 2022.
Speaking at Parliament building yesterday where a group of 10 legislators from Rift Valley allied to the DP blasted the Bomet governor of thinking he is a ‘big person’, Murkomen said Rutto’s leadership is violent and antagonistic.
â€œThe governorâ€™s leadership style is antagonistic and violent. He hopes to dictate his thoughts to leaders because he has failed on the ground. Already there are candidates clamouring for his seat, this shows he has lost touch on the ground, â€ he said.
â€œHe is trying to bring part of the CORD (Coalition for Reforms and Democracy) agenda to divide Rift Valley voters. We are aware of the schemes and he will be defeated. He is on a suicide mission and his minority view will not defeat a majority view,â€ he added.
