Nairobi - DP William Ruto did not invite me to fundraiser event, Governor claims.
Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto says that the DP did not invite him to an event in his own Bomet backyard.
He has accused the DP of trying to demean the people of Bomet and himself, saying that he is just biding his time before he makes a solid political statement in the region.
" I was not aware that the DP was coming o the region. I was not informed, which is very disrespectful," he told News24.
Over the weekend, the DP held a fundraiser at St Theresa Catholic Church at Mogogosiek in Konoin.
Governor Rutto was nowhere to be seen but says that he is ready to fight for his political space.
" I was elected by the people of Bomet and I will not be afraid to act like an elected official," he finished.
The two have not been seeing eye to eye in the last three years and are expected to offer tough competition to each other for Kalenjin supremacy come the 2017 elections.
