Several governors from the Mt Kenya region and other politicians are secretly meeting Deputy President William Ruto at night, according to Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua.
Speaking to NTV, Rigathi claimed that they are several politicians from Central Kenya that are secretly talking to DP Ruto to join his political side.
The lawmaker claimed that the said politicians are afraid to come out and declare their support for DP Ruto fearing intimidation from the government.
“There many governors who have been talking to us at night and the season to talk to us during the day is here. There is pressure on governors, members of parliament, and senators to move to UDA,” Rigathi said.
Rigathi claimed that the move by Kirinyaga Governor to publicly join UDA has opened doors for other politicians from the Mt Kenya region to openly join UDA.
Speaking on Waiguru’s move to join their political side, Rigathi said that the county chief was fully aware of the likely intimidations she is likely to encounter once she abandons the ruling party.
He said that they, those in UDA, had also taken Waiguru through some of the things that she is likely to face once she joins UDA.
He said that the move for Waiguru to join their side was a bold one and urged other politicians from the Mt.Kenya region to make a similar move without worrying about what the government might do to them.
