Wednesday May 27, 2020 – South Mugirango MP, Sylvanus Osoro, has come out to refute claims that the secret meeting he held on Sunday was a plot to ditch the Deputy President William Ruto’s camp.
Speaking yesterday, Osoro, a die-hard supporter of Ruto, termed the reports as mendacious and untruthful.
The lawmaker intimated that his meeting with Kenya National Congress (KNC) party leader, Manson Nyamweya, was aimed at discussing other issues noting that they both served as South Mugirango MPs.
He further assured his supporters that he was in the DP’s camp for the long run.
“Parties meet often and we discuss various matters.”
“The speculation of the content of the discussion is neither here nor there.”
“To cut you short, I am in Deputy President Ruto’s camp to stay.”
“All other stories, people imagining that we discussed plans to support Raila Odinga are untrue.”
“KNC is neither in NASA or Jubilee.”
“We are an independent party that gives us the freedom to make a choice individually.”
“I am in Ruto’s team,” stated Osoro.
“Those are periodic meetings that people discuss.”
“Manson Nyamweya is my former MP and I am his now.”
“We can discuss development,” he added.
Reports had claimed that Osoro was plotting to jump ship after meeting with Nyamweya, a man highly touted as a close ally of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
Ruto’s camp has experienced a shift since the Jubilee Party kickstarted the leadership shakeup that saw some of his allies such as Kipchumba Murkomen kicked out of top positions.
