Barely a week after he was heckled by Olenguruone residents who asked him to join the Deputy President William Ruto’s camp or perish, former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has confirmed that he will on Friday be at the forefront in welcoming the DP.
DP Ruto will on the day preside over Sotik CDF projects which include bodaboda operators fundraiser, issuing of school buses and later hand over a bus to Silibwet in Bomet Central.
In a viral video, Isaac Ruto is seen cornered by youth in Olenguruone town who advised him to back DP Ruto to rescue his dwindling political star.
” We really love you but if you want to save yourself from heading to political oblivion, please join wheelbarrow movement and work with the DP” locals told him
Until after 2013 general elections, the Chama Cha Mashinani party leader was a close ally DP Ruto but became political nemesis under unclear circumstances.
Ruto, a popular politician loved by many for his comical oratory skills, was sent to parking in 2017 by angry locals who punished him betraying Ruto.
His communication officer Bii Sayafrica has hinted that Ruto will be welcoming the DP in Silibwet town where he will be handing over a bus to Silibwet FC.
According to a Bomet based political analyst, Isaac must have made up his mind to remain politically relevant and to reclaim Bomet Governorship come 2022.
” Isaac is still popular, if he will support the DP in 2022 general elections, then he will have high chances of reclaiming his seat that he lost to the late Dr. Joyce Laboso who has the. a diehard of the DP” Shadrack Bett said
