Has KIPCHUMBA MURKOMEN also given up on RUTO and his 2022 bid? See what he said that has angered the DP and entire Rift Valley

Tuesday January 8, 2019-Elgeyo Marakwet Senator, Kipchumba Murkomen, has added his voice to the ongoing debate about the fate of Deputy President William Ruto's 2022 Presidential ambitions, saying the DP is not the automatic candidate for Jubilee party come 2022.

Speaking on Tuesday, Murkomen divulged Jubilee party was keen on promoting democracy and William Ruto can only become a Presidential candidate on a competitive basis.

He rubbished those calling for automatic Ruto candidature in 2022 as the enemy of democracy.

He said the political jitters around DP Ruto's Presidency were driven by the desire to test the tenets of democracy in Jubilee party.

"The President does not need to endorse the DP publicly to demonstrate that he is supporting him.”

“People must realise that we are building a political party where William Ruto is not an automatic Presidential candidate," said Murkomen.

Murkomen maintained that the Jubilee Party will subject all 2022 Presidential candidates through a nomination process and Ruto will also go through the same despite the fact that he is the front runner.

"After the nomination process, the President will have to take a position on who to support given that he is a senior Jubilee Party member.”

“Therefore, to push the President to support William Ruto is a pre-emption of a process that is meant to unite the party," he said.
