Wednesday August 7, 2019 - A section of members of the Agikuyu community living in Uasin Gishu County has vowed to support Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 presidential campaign.
Led by a prominent businessman in Eldoret town known as Joseph Wainaina, the group said DP Ruto is their undisputed candidate in 2022 and no one can change that, not even President Uhuru Kenyatta.
"As Kikuyu community living in Uasin Gishu and Rift Valley at large, we have decided to support and will campaign for William Ruto come rain come sunshine; he is our candidate," said Wainaina in a press address in Eldoret on Tuesday.
Wainaina reiterated that they are fostering peace with their Kalenjin counterparts who have expressed their support for Ruto's candidature in 2022.
"What people write in the newspaper that we won't support the DP is not true.”
“Come 2022, we will not allow some people to tell us who to vote for.”
“We will vote for Ruto whether he wins or not," stated Wainaina.
He called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to honour his promise of supporting Ruto stating that "it is in the public domain that President Uhuru Kenyatta said he will rule for 10 years and another ten years for his deputy."
