(KDRTV)-Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga has forsaken Deputy President William days after he was left out in the list of Central Kenya Governors who were invited to attend a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House in Mombasa
The governor who has played a more conspicuous role in holding DP Ruto`s presidential race in 2022 denounced his support citing his continues politicking
People Daily reported on Thursday, January 23 that the county chief said he is regretting his resolution to support the Jubilee deputy party leader despite a recurrent plea by president Uhuru against early campaigns that he said are a great challenge to development
Kahiga who became the governor after his boss Wahome Gakuru died in a road accident in November 2017, was speaking during an interview at a local radio station
Kahiga said that he had been duped to believe that the DP trips in Nyeri had a blessing from the head of state.
“DP Ruto has been in Nyeri many times and I have been attending his functions as the county governor. I have, however, come to realise that things are totally different from what I initially thought,” he said.
President Uhuru Kenyatta met governors from Mt. Kenya on Friday, January in what seems like his efforts to recover political might in the region
