Deputy President William Ruto has indefinitely pushed his tour of Bomet county indefinitely over what insiders at the Hustler’s center describe as intense rebellion from Isaac Rutto’s Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) opposed to the six-piece call by DP Ruto.
According to a source who spoke to this reporter on condition of anonymity, the deputy president was to visit Bomet after his Uasin Gishu tour last weekend – a trip he used to decampaign non-UDA aspirants and political rebels in his Rift Valley backyard.
”We elected some of these leaders (his critics) without any bias and we gave them a platform to represent and work for wananchi. They have plundered public resources and some cannot even walk and time is nigh they are shown the door,” DP Ruto said on May 23rd in Eldoret.
However, the UDA leader we can reveal rescheduled a similar trip to South Rift after getting briefs his six-piece call in the North Rift was not kindly taken by Chama Cha Mashinani members, a party with a huge following in Bomet and sections of Kericho counties.
While on his last tour of Bomet county in January, DP Ruto met a hostile crowd and had to stop campaigning for UDA candidates at their joint rally with CCM leader Isaac Rutto in Bomet Stadium.
