Sunday September 29, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto has responded to former Nairobi Women Representative, Rachael Shebesh, who on Friday said President Uhuru Kenyatta was coerced to endorse football star MacDonald Mariga as Jubilee Party candidate in looming Kibra by- election.
Shebesh, who was speaking to women in Kibra constituency, stated that Ruto and his allies gained access to State House through the back door.
Shebesh stated that she was at State House when the DP pressurized the president to endorse Mariga on September 18, 2019.
But in a fast rejoinder, Ruto urged all Jubilee supporters to ignore calls by those he deemed not fit to speak for the party leadership.
"All Jubilee party supporters should ignore and treat with utter contempt rebels and those rejected by the electorate who now deceptively purport to speak for the party leadership.
"Let's give Mariga our flag bearer moral, material and prayerful support. Victory is surely beckoning," Ruto said on Saturday.
