Nairobi - DP William Ruto has failed, a Jubilee Governor insists.
Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto says that the DP has failed his own people and those who supported him in the 2013 General Elections by closing up the United Republican Party URP and forcing them to join the Jubilee Party.
He says that he has decided to form his own party to force through the kind of democratic space that Kalenjin people need.
" We cannot all be in one party. That is undemocratic. It takes us back to the KANU days. We are past that," he said.
He added that he would use his Mashinani Party to vie for political seats come 2017.
" I will use the Mashinani Party to vie for elections. I think that I have made it very clear," he stated.
Ruto has in the past stated that he would like to once again work with the DP but he says that the boat has sailed.
" Not when the Jubilee Party exists," he added.
