Saturday September 28, 2019-Former Nairobi Women Representative, Rachael Shebesh, has sensationally claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta was forced by his deputy William Ruto to endorse football star Macdonald Mariga as Jubilee Party candidate in Kibra by- election.
In a video shared on Youtube, Shebesh noted that she was at State House when Ruto arrived there to seek President Uhuru's support.
Shebesh claimed that the endorsement came after pressure from DP Ruto's camp.
The Jubilee Party belongs to Uhuru Kenyatta. Should I tell you why? Because he is the president. Let's repeat that point, who is he? He is the president. The day he endorsed Mariga I was at State House as I had an assignment with the CS. I know how hey accessed State House through the back door. I know how they piled pressure to get that photo you saw. Our boss Uhuru has a voice. Did you hear him speak or you only saw the photos?",” Shebesh said.
Shebesh is among few Jubilee Party lawmakers who have gone against the party rules and they are currently campaigning for ODM candidate, Imran Okoth.
The Kibra by- election is slated for November 7th.
