(KDRTV)-Deputy President William Ruto has suffered a blow after his close allies skipped his event in Nyeri county on Friday, February 4.
The lonely deputy president was attending an event at Giakanja Boys High School in Nyeri county when his close allies from Mt. Kenya skipped the event
Recently, the deputy president has been known to be attending events in Mt. Kenya with a group of lawmakers to reveal his might in the Mt. Kenya region
However, during the said event, he only had four legislatures and two ward representatives
According to Daily Nation, those who were in attendance included Nyeri county representative Rahab Mukami, MP Rigathi Gachagua, MP Antony Kiai and MP George Murugara
Again, the local administrators were also evidently missing the event with only one official from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) office
It is reported that the function only lasted for one and a half hours and the turnout was very low
During his speech, the second in command said he was fully behind the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) so long as it will cater to the needs of the people of Kenya
The turnout at the event was a shocker since that the allies to the DP in the region had not shied to accompany the second in command during events at the region
According to our previous reports, the Deputy President is expected to attend the BBI forum in Nyeri together for the first time.
However, the politicians allied to the tanga tanga sect had vowed to attend all BBI forums to air their grievances
However, Raila Odinga has expressed his wish to have the BBI rallies to stop at March and allow doors for a referendum
