Wednesday, December 16, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto is not a politician to joke with, going by the results of Tuesday by-elections in Msambweni, Murang’a, Wundanyi, and Naivasha.
In Msambweni, Ruto’s candidate, Feisal Bader, won the seat with a huge margin after he thrashed ODM candidate, Omar Boga, who had the backing of President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader, Raila Odinga.
In the Gaturi Ward by-election in Murang’a, Esther Mwihaki Kamau, who had the support of Ruto beat Jubilee Party candidate, Rose Wakuthii with a huge margin.
In Lakeview Ward Naivasha, Ruto’s man Wanyoike Wanango won the seat beating the Jubilee Party candidate badly.
In Mbale Ward, Wundanyi constituency, Ruto’s man gave ODM’s candidate a big thrashing indicating that the DP’s hustler’s movement is a force to be reckoned with.
In his remarks on Wednesday, Ruto said the by-elections are an indication that democracy and people’s power has triumphed.
“Democracy and People power have triumphed. Watu wa Msambweni Mungu awabariki. To others, there’s next time.” Ruto said.
