Nothing changes for Rutto despite Uhuruto Bomet visit

11 May 2015, 18:38 William Korir

Nairobi - Nothing has changed for Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto despite the visit to Bomet County by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

Ruto states that he will continue to fight the deputy President despite calls for unity by the president Sunday during a church fundraiser at the Bomet Stadium.

He says that the visit was ill judged by the top two and insists that he was not cowed by their arrival.

" I think that they did wrong by talking politics in a church function. We had agreed as Bomet leaders that we would not peddle politics during the service but they did".

" It shows what their intention for the trip was in the first place," he told News24 on phone.

Ruto has also insisted that he will not join up with the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Part as it was a fallacy.

" I will not join JAP. There is no reason to because it is a fallacy".

" The party does not represent the will or the needs of the people and is doomed to fail," he added.

The fact that the president and his deputy came out to his County was in the end a positive for Rutto.

" They came to see the people and that I cannot fault them for. I thank them for making the trip to visit the people of Bomet," he added.

Rutto has led a charmed offensive against the DP in the South Rift, with calls for the two to reconcile being reiterated by the president during the visit.

It waits to be seen whether the two will see eye to eye though the likely-hood is that it will stretch on closer to the 2017 General Election.
