Friday, January 28, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto has been dealt a severe blow after his home Senator, Prof. Margaret Kamar, officially joined Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja Movement.
The Senator led other political heavyweights from the Rift Valley region to pledge their support for ODM Leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid.
Kamar’s delegation included former Cabinet Minister and powerful head of public service Sally Kosgey, former Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo and Gender CAS Linah Chebii Kilimo in supporting Raila.
The leaders were received by Raila and accompanied by Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui and former Internal Security Assistant Minister Stephen Tarus, who is a vocal critic of the DP.
At the same time, allies of Amani National Congress (ANC) leader, Musalia Mudavadi, who did not agree with his decision to join forces with DP Ruto were also received by Raila at Chungwa House.
The ANC defectors were majorly from Kakamega County.
In October, Tarus launched scathing attacks against the Deputy President accusing him of contributing to the Rift Valley region’s woes.
Speaking during Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja Rift Valley tour, Tarus stated that the people of Rift Valley had long been oppressed.
The former Assistant Minister accused DP Ruto of killing the region’s economy.
He maintained that DP Ruto has destroyed the region’s economy by refusing to pay farmers and taking money from cereals.
Tarus further faulted the DP for selectively appointing people in government and destroying the careers of great men and women in the region.
He termed DP Ruto’s party as one that attracts eaters expressing his confidence in Raila’s party as one that reforms.
