Soi MP, and William Ruto’s unofficial spokesman has not only come out strongly, but also put a whole new spin on the anomaly that has been Bomet and Kericho counties.
Prior to the presentation, and subsequent debate of the Constitutional Amendment Bill 2020 to the county assemblies, it was taken as something of a forgone conclusion that the Kalenjin counties of Bomet, Kericho, Nandi, Elgeyo Marakwet and Uasin Gishu were going to reject the Bill in totality.
However, as results started streaming in, Kenyans were presented with quite shocking results that didn’t seem to make sense at all.
Not only did two Rift Valley Counties (West Pokot and Kajiado) pass the Bill in quick succession of each other, but also, two William Ruto strongholds, Bomet and Kericho, also passed the Bill.
This has sparked talk about a South Rift rebellion against the DP.
It should be remembered that in the first term of Uhuru and Ruto’s administration, there was experienced something of a revolt against the DP, with then Bomet governor Isaac Ruto showing open defiance, while the Kericho governor showed questionable loyalty, as the region threatened to reject Ruto’s candidate for the Kericho county senatorial seat which was going on then.
However, Caleb Kositany has now complicated the already puzzling scenario even further by saying that all what is happening is just another part of their machinations in the entire exercise, and as a matter of fact, people are slowly falling in their trap without knowing it.
The Soi MP was on Citizen TV’s morning show Daybreak, on an episode which was titled State of the Nation, hosted by Trevor Ombija just this week. While the MP was linking with studio via internet, those in the studio were Machakos governor Alfred Mutua, Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo and Kiambu senator, who is also the Senate Chief Whip, Kimani Wamatangi.
