Uhuru, Ruto head for Bomet rescue mission

10 May 2015, 10:38 William Korir

Nairobi - Jubilee Coalition chiefs President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto head to Bomet as they seek to reclaim support in a County that has steered away from their political inkling.

The two leaders will attend a church service in Bomet Sunday and then address supporters in rally afterwards.

The main aim of the trip to Bomet.


Bomet Governor Isaac Rutto has led an offensive against DP Ruto and has sought to distance himself from the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party as well as his leadership of the South Rift.

He has also led an anti government call for a referendum, which has to date not been met with happiness from State House.

Basically, Rutto is a problem child and Bomet is a ticking time bomb.

Thus the move to have the president visit to help reclaim Bomet.

" The president and the DP are confident they have Bomet in the pocket. However, if they do not deal with Rutto, everything might be seen to be going wrong and that they cannot deal with it, Political scientist from the Rift Joshua Kipng'etich told News24.

" Rutto has led a charmed offensive and no one has stopped him. The arrival of the president and his deputy will seek to try put and end to it, he added.

Then there is the sticky point of the JAP party.

The United Republican Party URP has been strongly against the JAP, which seeks to have all Jubilee Alliance parties all collapse and fall into one umbrella.

It is likely it will also be a topic of discussion.

That said, the official reason for the trip by the president and DP to Bomet is to attend a church fundraiser at the Bomet Stadium.

"As the leadership of this county we have all agreed there will no politicking during the day. We are looking forward to welcome and not only the two leaders but all other guests present who will attend," a joint press statement signed by Bomet leaders including Governor Rutto reads.

We wait and see.
