Wednesday August 21, 2019 - A vocal Kieleweke Team MP has accused Deputy President William Ruto of disrespecting President Uhuru Kenyatta by engaging in premature campaigns for 2022 presidential elections.
Kieleweke is a name given to a group of Jubilee Party legislators opposed to Ruto’s presidential quest in 2022.
Speaking on Wednesday, Nyeri Town MP, Ngunjiri Wambugu, who is a member of Kieleweke, vowed to thwart Ruto’s campaigns in his constituency should people come to advocate for 2022.
Ngunjiri insisted that President Uhuru Kenyatta is still in charge for three years adding that he will not allow politicians to disrespect him.
“Stop imagining that you can come from outside and start intimidating us.”
“If you come to do 2022 politics here, we have the right to tell you on your face that we do not want early politicking.”
“We shall not be violent but we will exercise our right of expression and tell you that you are doing the wrong thing,” Ngunjiri said.
“Those who want to engage in early politics should visit the other 289 constituencies and campaign there.”
“I can’t come here and say I won’t do campaigns but the people I have come with spend 30 minutes or an hour campaigning.”
“We are not fools.” Ngunjiri added.
The vocal MP also maintained that Uhuru is not going anywhere even after 2022 presidential elections.
