Monday, March 14, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza brigade pitched camp in Meru over the weekend, wooing voters in the region to support Ruto’s presidential bid.
They also questioned Meru Governor Kiraitu Murungi’s motive after joining the Azimio la Umoja Movement, noting that he did not decide out of his free will.
Led by Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki, the Kenya Kwanza brigade claimed that Kiraitu was coerced to back Raila’s Azimio la Umoja alliance.
Kindiki noted that attempts to dissuade Kiraitu from joining Azimio were thwarted by alleged intimidation from the State.
According to Kindiki, Kiraitu’s past would have been unearthed and used against him had he not joined the Raila team.
“We’ve spoken to him for more than six years, showing him that the ground, and Meru in particular, was with Ruto. However, towards the end, he joined Azimio. Is it the people who sent him there?”
“So, my brother, I’m sorry my brother but the ground has spoken. The next Meru governor will be Mithika Linturi,” Kindiki stated.
Expressing confidence in the Kenya Kwanza coalition, DP Ruto stated that he did not fear cheap antics, deep state politics as his side would eventually emerge the victor.
“They try to sell us the fear of the DCI, deep state, and the system but we want to inform them that we are not shaken.”
“We will not let you down. Those who were at the KICC event were busy organising seats and positions of power and we want to tell them that Kenyans seek employment, economic shift, and an agricultural-based revolution,” Ruto stated.
Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader Musalia Mudavadi also took a swipe at the likes of Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya, whom he criticized for his allegiance to President Uhuru Kenyatta, noting that an outgoing Head of State cannot guarantee positions in the next government.
