Kikuyus will support Peter Kenneth in 2022, Jubilee MP tells Ruto

28 June 2016, 17:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Kikuyus will support Peter kenneth come the 2022 elections, a Jubilee MP has told DP William Ruto.

The MP from Nyeri County who asked not to be named told News24 that there is no hope that the community will support Ruto, even if he believes that he will get backing from President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Noting that Kikuyus have never voted as a block for one who is not their own, he said Ruto and his past will not get him anywhere come the 2022 elections.

" The DP must look at historical facts before making his mind up," the MP who said that the DP knew the truth told News24.

" Peter Kenneth will be ripe and ready come 2022 and Kikuyus will very likely vote for him ahead of the DP," he added.

As for why Kikuyus cannot vote for Ruto specifically, the MP says that none of them has forgotten the 2008 Post Election Violence.

" The 2008 Post Election Violence is still fresh in the minds of many. It is one factor that does not lie in the DP's favour," the MP added.

State House has come out to state that the DP will get the support of the Kikuyu community come the 2022 polls in an unusual statement Tuesday.

The hullabaloo over the Ruto vote came after Kiambu Governor William Kabogo stated that the DP will not earn the vote of the Kikuyu come the 2022 polls after the retirement of President Kenyatta.
