Ruto appoints former Kalonzo ally URP official
BY DANIEL NZIA
United Republican Party (URP) leader William Ruto has picked a former close ally of Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka as the party’s Deputy Secretary General.
Mr Fred Muteti from Makueni County hosted Ruto during his tour of Makueni and Machakos counties.
Mr Ruto assured his supporters that URP will conduct free and fair nominations to ensure justice.
The party chairman, Francis ole Kaparo, said URP is the party to watch and encouraged like-minded Kenyans to join it. "I resigned from Government to concentrate on building the party ahead of the forthcoming election. I assure you URP is the party to beat," he told cheering crowds in Makueni and Machakos.
Muteti, who will be contesting the Makueni parliamentary seat currently held by Peter Kiilu of Wiper Democratic Movement, encouraged the youth to register as voters in large numbers. Mr Tom Luusa, an aspirant for the Makueni County Governor seat called on voters to vet those seeking elective positions.
"You should not gamble when electing leaders, especially at the county level because the success or failure of counties will depend on the kind of leaders you elect," Luusa told the congregation
