Bomet Governor told to keep off Nakuru County
28 August 2014, 12:05
Nakuru - Jubilee leaders from Nakuru County on Wednesday accused the Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto of seeking to divide the County residents and told him to keep off.
The leaders drawn from both the TNA and URP parties said they will not entertain "political tourism" to disrupt the peace being enjoyed in the county.
Led by the Bahati Member of Parliament Kimani Ngunjiri, the leaders said President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto through the Jubilee coalition have brought peace and harmonious coexistence among the various communities in the county.
Governor Ruto, who toured the area on Monday during the homecoming ceremony of the deputy speaker of the Nakuru County Assembly Samuel Tonui, is alleged to have incited the residents over resource allocation saying some areas were more favored than others.
Ngunjiri was however quick to dismiss the allegations saying the Government had given resources to marginalized areas.
“In Nakuru county, we have shared our resourses equally and we will not allow some people to come and divide us,” he said.
Those present included the URP chairman, Joseph Bett, his TNA counterpart Harrison Muiruri. Others included the chairperson of Maendeleo ya Wanawake, Keziah Ngina, and Benjamin Rotich.
In related development, a group allied to Governor Ruto defended him saying that his crusade for "Money Mashinani" should be supported in the referendum, saying Ruto's sentiments did not contain any inciting words as alleged.
