We know who Governor Ruto is working for, claim Bomet MPs

25 March 2015, 09:13 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – MPs from Bomet and Kericho Counties have expressed their displeasure with their Governor, Isaac Ruto’s political fight against the Deputy President, William Ruto over Rift Valley votes.

The more than five MPs led by Kericho Senator, Charles Keter who hails from the South Rift region, warned Governor Ruto against undermining and discrediting the Jubilee coalition together with its leadership saying it helped him clinch the gubernatorial seat.

Keter, who read a statement on behalf of the MPs, claimed that Ruto’s unbecoming habit of irrationally attacking the Jubilee leadership is evidently a strategy to escape widely questioned accountability and transparency in his leadership, and added that he should be working for and with a certain master.

“We know whom Isaac Ruto works for, whom he works with and what he is after,” said Keter.

“The Governor’s issue with Jubilee is our unwavering position that accountability is not negotiable and therefore he has sought refuge in working for and with interests that are not supportive of accountability, responsibility, integrity and transparency,” he added.

The MPs asked Ruto to desist from “petty politicking” and instead embark on delivering strategies, initiatives and projects to develop Bomet County as per the residents’ initial expectations.

The legislators claimed that their County “remains marginalized and backward” as a result of the Governor’s “irresponsible utterances” as a strategy to cover up his shortcomings especially when it comes to corruption and mismanagement of resources.

“We remind him that the Deputy President is a leader whose national support base cannot be shaken by people of Ruto’s caliber. He should not waste his energy and time on a fool’s errand that will backfire on him sooner or later,” said Keter.

He asked the Governor to show respect for other leaders and “manage his arrogance and shortsightedness which makes him believe somehow he has a better mandate than other leaders elected by same people.”

Sotik MP, Joyce Laboso who is reportedly eying the Bomet gubernatorial seat come 2017 general elections, said she is yet to decide.
