Barely a month after leading a successful campaign that saw Feisal Bader ascend to power as the next MP for Msambweni Constituency trouncing ODM’s favorite Omar Boga, Deputy President William Ruto camps at the coast once again.
In what appears to be another ground testing move, the DP is expected to once again make inroads to the Coastal stretch to consolidate support in his quest for a chunk of the votes ahead of the 2022 general elections.
During his three-day visit to the region, Ruto will be commissioning a number of projects carried out by his allied leaders, and also overseeing a number of fundraisers.
Reports privy to his itinerary indicate that the DP will begin his tour in Kwale County tomorrow where he last visited a month ago, and thereafter proceed to Mombasa for another 2 days.
“The DP will be in Mwagulu town of Lunga Lunga to officiate the commissioning of projects funded by the CDF,” Lunga Lunga MP Khatib Mwashetani, Ruto’s host in Kwale, said on Wednesday.
He will then proceed to Mombasa County, where the second in command will be hosted by Nyali legislator Mohamed Ali alias Jicho Pevu.
While there, Ruto will oversee the official launch of Kwale Bulo primary and secondary schools.
He is also expected to grace a youth empowerment event at the Kadongo grounds in Kisauni and proceed to undertake a fundraiser for a Boba Boda youth group at Frere Town grounds.
On Saturday the leader of the hustler nation will be in Changamwe and Jomvu constituencies where he will carry out a number of youth empowerment programs.
This comes days after his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta criticized him for polarizing the public against the BBI endorsement while giving wheelbarrows in return.
During his four-day working tour of the Mt. Kenya region, Uhuru described Ruto as a deceitful and impatient leader who should never be trusted with the Country’s leadership.
