Nakuru - Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto will form a new political party before the 2017 general elections.
Kuresoi south MP, Zakayo Cheruiyot said that the new party will accommodate members who will decamp from the United Republican party.
Speaking at the Kuresoi market Cheruiyot said that together with Ruto, he will lead other likeminded people in Rift valley to form a home of their own.
"There are so many of us who have refused to be forced into joining the so called JAP because that is not our home. We cannot accept to be forced into a house that has been constructed by others," said Cheruiyot.

He added, "Governor Ruto has agreed to lead us into our own house and that will come before 2017 because as people of Rift valley, we cannot allow others to kill us politically by forcing us to join them."
Cheruiyot further accused deputy President, William Ruto of using the office of the President and the anti corruption commission to fight Governor Rutto politically and warned him that he will face the people's wrath in 2017.
"The deputy President is doing everything possible to kill Governor Ruto politically but let him be told that south Rift will stand by Governor Ruto and we will defend him to the end," he said.
