13 June 2016, 12:52
Nakuru - Kuresoi south member of Parliament Zakayo Cheruiyot has told Deputy President William Ruto to take seriously the sentiments made by Kiambu Governor William Kabogo regarding Kikuyus' support in the 2022 general election.
Cheruiyot said that the DP and his allies should not dismiss and admonish Kabogo for saying that the DP is not guaranteed of the Kikuyu support in 2022.
He instead urged the DP to critically think about what Kabogo said because it might come to pass soon.
"What Kabogo said is nothing but the plain truth and time will come when his words will come to pass.

"The DP should take Kabogo seriously because he is not a mad man to just utter things that don't add up. Kabogo just passed a message that many fear to pass across," said Cheruiyot.
The MP asked Ruto to start making peace with other tribes in the country and stop relying on the Kikuyu vote as he prepares for 2022.
"If I were Ruto, I would have started making peace with other tribes like the Luo and Luhya because he might just need them at some point in time when things will turn upside down," he said.
"He should stop turning other tribes into his enemies because that will work against him in 2022," he said.
Kabogo has been under attack from Rift Valley and central Kenya leaders after he said that Ruto's support from the Kikuyu community for the 2022 elections is not guaranteed.
