I don't know the party I will use in 2017, says Rutto

23 February 2015, 11:25 Jackson Okata

Bomet - Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto has said that he is not sure about the political party he will use to defend his seat in 2017 following the formation of the new Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).

Speaking at a Nakuru hotel Saturday morning, Ruto who is also the Council of Governors’ chairman, said that he is a member of the united republican party (URP) but since it is clear the party will be no longer be in existence come 2017, he cannot tell which vehicle he will use.

Ruto said he is not part of JAP because he was not part of its formation.

“I am a URP member as you know and the party has not been dissolved to my understanding and therefore I cannot start speaking about other outfits because am not part of them. When the right time comes in 2017, politics will define the direction we will follow,” said Ruto.

He added that he is aware of a plot by some senior URP officials to sponsor a candidate to oppose him in 2017.

“Because I have been an open minded person who speaks out his mind without fear, some selfish people think they can lock me out of their party but I want to let them know that the people of Bomet will decide who their Governor will be in 2017 and that decision cannot be made by some few confused hypocrites,” he said.
