Nairobi - URP MPs have been asked to attend the ICC thanksgiving rally for DP William Ruto over the weekend so as not to embarrass him.
It is expected that many Jubilee Coalition friendly leaders will attend the rally on Saturday but it has not been made an optional case for members of the DP's party URP.
According to MPs from the Rift Valley, they have been told to make time to attend the rally so as not to leave the party short of numbers and support come the d day.
The DP will be led by President Uhuru Kenyatta in the rally.
" We have been told to make time so as not to embarrass the DP," an MP who did not want to be named told News24.
However, URP Secretary Aden Duale stated that it was upto the individual leaders to decide whether they want to attend or not.
" No one is being forced. It is a free occasion but also a big occasion for the Jubilee Coalition as well as the DP," he stated.
It is expected that as many as 100,000 people will attend the rally.
