Dagorreti North MP Paul Simba Arati has thrown an egg to Dp Ruto’s face by telling him to officially take over as the opposition boss.
Speaking in an event organised by Dagoretti NGCDF at Lavington Primary school on Sunday, the MP said he is in government to stay.
“We are now in the post-handshake era. I will support President Uhuru Kenyatta in the fight against corruption at all costs, ” said Arati.
Hon Arati’s sentments were seconded by Cherangany MP Hon Joshua Kuttuny who said it was now obvious that Rutophobia has swept the country and that the hustler ‘Ruto wiro nefa be prisident’ is a reality and that he instead should take his rightful role as opposition leader doubling up as DP since his position is protected by the constitution.
Kutuny said the DP is well suited to succeed Raila in the opposition politics given his abrasive nature and phobia building up in Mt Kenya. He said by joining opposition Ruto will clense himself and try three more times just like Raila.
In the recent past, Dp Ruto seems to be at loggerheads with ODM boss former PM Raila Odinga who happens to be Simba Arati’s close mentor.
“I am asking the Deputy President to look for his allies Oscar Sudi and Kipchumba Murkomen so that they form the opposition team. That is where they fit, “added Arati.
At the event, Arati issued NCDF bursaries to 3000 students totaling to Sh 22 million.
The Arror and Kimwarer dams are meant to solve perennial water scarcity in Baringo and Elgeyo Marakwet (Kerio Valley). Mega corruption remains the real problem. #FaillingGOK pic.twitter.com/QmTVWRXhKK

Rift Valley region is the biggest voters block but always being shortchanged with selfish leaders then used as voting machine.

Whatever is happening in Baringo right now is a matter of urgency. No Kenyan should die of starvation, not now not ever. It has to be fixed.
