Rutto is politically possessed and mad, deputy Governor says

25 March 2015, 17:08 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Nakuru deputy Governor, Joseph Rutto has claimed that Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto is a politically possessed man following his persistent attacks on deputy President, William Ruto.

Rutto warned the Bomet Governor that he is digging his own political grave by trying to oppose the deputy president in the rift Valley.

Speaking Wednesday at Nakuru town, Rutto said that Governor Rutto has lost his mind and his political ancestors are misleading him.

“My friend Governor Rutto has lost his mind and is possessed. That is why you see him trying to jump into waters that he cannot swim in. Trying to fight the deputy President in rift Valley is like digging his own political grave and I pity him because if he doesn’t change then the people of rift Valley will change him politically,” he said.

He added, “Let him not think that the people of rift Valley are mad like him and we will only be mad to follow him into his political grave.”

Rutto told his namesake to be patient and wait for his time to come instead of forcing things.

Politicians in south rift are divided over supporting the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) which Governor Rutto has vehemently opposed.
