As reports that Jubilee Party plans to decamp to the Kenya Kwanza Alliance continue to reverberate across the political landscape, the Orange Democratic Movement party member from Mt Kenya who warned his party leader of this is now gloating as his words risk coming true.
Murang’a County Orange Democratic Movement party senatorial aspirant in the August poll Pius Kinuthia took to Twitter to boast that he had earlier warned of this outcome but no one listened to him.
Kinuthia has long called on his party to be weary of its allies from the Mountain region, even sensationally claiming, months to the polls, that some of the party agents who Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance Coalition Party had employed in Murang’a were reporting back to William Ruto.
Just yesterday, the Standard Newspaper reported that former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga had been dealt a major blow after top Mt Kenya leaders declared that the political debt they had to pay has been cleared.
The move has since left the Orange Democratic Movement ODM party leader in a major political limbo with his influence in the region being at stake, the publication claimed.
Apparently, among those who have declared their support for His Excellency the Head of State president William Ruto are top Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance politicians from the region.
The then Deputy President William Ruto was declared winner of Kenya’s hard-fought presidential poll but the announcement was mired in controversy after several members of the election commission rejected the results.
Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati said Ruto had won almost 7.18 million votes (50.49 percent) in the August 9 vote, against 6.94 million (48.85 percent) for his rival Raila Odinga.
“In accordance with the law, I… hereby declare that Ruto William Samoei has been duly elected as the president.”
In the 7 million votes that helped Ruto clinch victory, a bulk of it came from the Mount Kenya region.
After the results were announced, he vowed to work with “all leaders” in Kenya.
