What started as ideological factions dubbed Tanga tanga and Kieleweke has morphed into a full blown war that is deteriorating in worrying magnitude.
Central Kenya MPs against Deputy President William Ruto’s 2022 bid have told him in no blabbering terms to not dare set foot in Kiambu county unless he is accompanied by his boss Uhuru Kenyatta.
In a very bold statement heavy with political undertones, the lawmakers criticized the DP’s sneaking rendezvous in Uhuru’s backyard and warned him to dare again.
The Kieleweke team further called for the DP to quit his job if he cannot stop the 2022 presidential election campaigns.
“You are not welcome in this county unless you are accompanied by Uhuru,” said former MP George Nyanja adding that, “how can someone go to another person’s home without his knowledge?”
He took a swipe at the DP who has been crisscrossing the country for church fund raisers asking him to prove his seriousness to work of God by rebuilding churches that were destroyed during the 2007 post-election violence.
“Kiambaa church was burnt during the post-election violence. People died inside and others were left with permanent scars, let the DP build that if he is honest about his church fund-raisers,” he said.
Nyanja spoke at Githunguri while others led by Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny said Ruto must respect his boss and the Jubilee manifesto.
He said this should include full support of the Big Four agenda meant to improve the lives of millions of Kenyans.
“Kenyans cannot access good health, transportation or education because some people have stolen the funds and are now using them to campaign,” Kiambu deputy governor James Nyoro said.
