The Kipsisgis sub tribe of the Kalenjin nation have made it clear their preferred presidential candidate is NASA flagbearer Raila Odinga.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto will have a lot of convincing to do as the political tide in South Rift seems to be shifting in favor of the Governor Isaac Ruto and NASA brigade led by Premier Raila.
The tag of war between the DP and the Bomet Governor, political pundits aver, will adversely impact Uhuru’s chances of retaining the presidency come August 8.
Isaac Rutto has accused the DP of having a foul mouth and of being disrespectful of area leaders. This bitter fallout led the Governor to join forces with the National Super Alliance (NASA).
Rutto, who will be contesting for his seat under Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) against Jubilee’s Joyce Laboso, was named as NASA fifth principal. His mobilization skills cannot be underscored and Jubilee are seemingly learning this the hard way.
