Nakuru - Rift valley leaders from the jubilee divide have distanced themselves from Governor Kabogo's sentiments that the coalition will not support of Deputy President William Ruto in 2022 polls.
Nakuru County Deputy Governor Hon. Joseph Rutto has dismissed Kiambu County Governor Kabogo’s sentiments noting that we should not attempt to cross the river before we reach it.
“Since the inception of the ruling coalition, communities from the Rift Valley region have co-existed in peace something that progressive leaders should spearhead at all times,” he said
Bahati legislator Hon. Kimani Ngunjiri told off Kabogo saying "Jubilee won’t be divided by people thinking of self interest."
Ngunjiri who is the chairman for Nakuru County MPs said the residents are supporting Ruto purposely.
"We are not following Ruto blindly but with purpose. We all know what cohesion initiated by jubilee has done for us." Ngunjiri said.
The leaders urged Nakuru County residents to maintain peace saying, “If Nakuru is peaceful, the entire nation has peace. Cases of conflicts have a history of starting in this area and we ought to create change.”
The leaders said Kabogo should apologize and withdraw the statement otherwise they will call on jubilee Party deny him nomination terming him an enemy of cohesion.
They warned Kabogo against diverting national attention to the wrong agenda and should deal with his differences with Hon. Ferdinand Waititu honorably.
