Babu contradicted himself when he maintained that he would still vote for NASA leader Raila Odinga
Speaking at his home in Sugoi, Ruto said: “Politics is about planning and mobilisation
Embakasi East MP Babu Owino on Thursday stated that choosing the President from your own tribe does not translate to better treatment.
This is after Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria complained that some of the regions which overwhelmingly voted for President Uhuru Kenyatta had been overlooked in recent development projects.
However, Babu contradicted himself when he maintained that he would still vote for NASA leader Raila Odinga even if he decides not to vie.
“Hon Moses Kuria has made it clear that one of you being the President is not a guarantee for better treatment! It's all about leadership not region/tribe.
“I will vote for Raila Odinga in 2022 & should he decide not to vie, I will add his name to my ballot paper and vote for him,” he wrote.
Although the next election is three years away, battle lines are already being drawn especially after a section of Jubilee Party members stated that DP William Ruto is not the automatic choice to succeed President Kenyatta.
The DP has played down this talk for a while but recently lashed out at his competitors who are waiting for endorsements.
Speaking at his home in Sugoi, Ruto said: “Politics is about planning and mobilisation. There is nothing like this (State House seat) being endorsed, or given. I have seen some hanging around waiting for endorsements.
“How do you expect to be endorsed for this seat, surely? This one, this, you must work for it,” said Dr Ruto.
