Win for Raila as Narok leaders snub Ruto invitation
04 February 2015, 17:13
Nairobi - Leaders from Narok county have snubbed a meeting set up by Deputy President William Ruto to iron out leadership matters in the County as well as explain the government's position on last week's violence.
The leaders were invited by Ruto Wednesday at his Karen offices to iron out the differences between the County and Central government over the perceived siding with corrupt Governor Samuel Tunai.
The leaders, led by Senator Stephen Ole Ntutu did not show up for the meeting, which had been set up by a disappointed Ruto.
" They did not show up for the meeting. Why they did not, we do not know," a source that did not want to be named told News24.
The leaders are said to have been very unhappy with the way the government handled the recent demonstrations in the County.
Two people were killed in demonstrations over Tunai's corrupt dealings and alleged misappropriation of funds that belong to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
Ntutu and four MPs were jailed last week over the violence and released on bail.
CORD leader Raila Odinga has already drawn major support from the Narok region, after he attended the 5 leaders' court session as well as the burial of one of the Narok dead.
It is understood that Narok County is heavily considering moving to the opposition after the violence and the way the government has handled the matter.
