Tuesday, January 25, 2022 – Kirinyaga Governor, Anne Waiguru, has said Deputy President William Ruto has no other choice but to appoint a running mate from Mt Kenya if he wants the vote-rich region to support his candidacy in August.
Speaking on Tuesday, Waiguru said the current agreement between DP Ruto and the Kikuyu nation is that he must appoint somebody from the region as his running mate.
“The issue of where does the running mate come from, the agreement so far has been that the person will come from the Mt. Kenya region,” Waiguru said.
Waiguru ‘s comments come two days after Amani National Congress(ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi pledged to work with DP Ruto.
Mudavadi, who was accompanied by Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, said they will work with DP Ruto ahead of the August 9th election.
Political pundits have been saying that DP Ruto has promised Mudavadi a running mate position, a move the majority of the Mt Kenya electorate is opposed to.
