Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has stated that he would not be defending his seat on a Jubilee ticket in the 2017 polls.
He accused the Deputy President of being a dictator and working against all tenets of a multiparty democracy in the country and especially in the Rift Valley region.
“I can not sit back and watch as dictatorship is being entrenched by leaders who have a top down approach on issues,” He said.
The Governor said he would be defending the position on the newly formed Chama Cha Mashinani party.
Ruto said had a constitutional right in forming the Chama Cha Mashinani party which is associated with him and some rebel URP leaders across and outside Rift Valley region.
“Kenya is a multiparty democracy and I have a constitutional right to belong to a party of my choice including participating in the formation of a new one,” Mr Ruto stated while speaking at a prize giving day at Tenwek high school in Bomet.
