ISAAC RUTO shocks UHURU and RUTO after saying he is yet to join JUBILEE PARTY

Friday September 29, 2017-Chama Cha Mashinani(CCM) party leader, Isaac Rutto, has shocked Jubilee Party leaders and supporters after claiming that he is yet to join the ruling coalition.

Last month, Rutto publicly defected from the Raila Odinga led NASA camp and joined President Uhuru Kenyatta‘s campaign team.

But in an interview with one of the local daily on Tuesday Ruto said:”I have not defected; I am still the party leader of Chama Cha Mashinani. I was persuaded to support President Kenyatta’s re-election by the need to keep the community together.”

He also noted that about 60 per cent of the people that voted for him cast their vote in support of Kenyatta.

“Only 35 per cent agreed with me and voted for NASA. I did not want to continue disagreeing with the 60%,” he said.

On claims on whether he was threatened into supporting Kenyatta, he said:”I heard some people saying that I was threatened but there is no such thing. No favours were offered.”

 He also vowed to ensure President Kenyatta get 100 percent of Bomet county votes during the October 26 election.
