Hours after the Jubilee party hit him below the belt bolting out of the upcoming mini polls things move from bad to worse for Deputy President William Ruto.
This is after the Rareda Member of Parliament Paul Otiende Amollo poked holes in his hustler narrative with which he uses to back his source of wealth.
Speaking on Citizen TV in the morning today, Otiende questioned the number of chickens the DP sold to make him one of the richest people in the country and region.
“Let us stop some of these narratives. You cannot sell chicken and become one of the richest people in this country and the region, that’s absolute nonsense. How many chickens would you sell? 100 billion chicken?” Otiende said.
The development comes at a time when the ruling Jubilee party is rocked by divisions with the President and his Deputy reading from different scripts with the head of state giving the clearest indication yet that he may not support the second in command in the 2022 general elections.
Yesterday the party secretary-general Raphael Tuju made it clear that the party will not participate in the Matungu, Kabuchai, and Machakos by-elections.
Tuju cited the good relationship and relative peace that the country enjoys with the Jubilee party collaborating with ODM, Ford Kenya, ANC, KANU, and Wiper as one of the reasons for the decision.
He also noted that the party is acting based on intelligence and credible research on the possible outcome of the polls.
With the decision, the party once again denied the DP a chance to flex his political muscles in a showdown that would have seen him face off with Raila Odinga and other politicians.
