National Super Alliance (NASA) co-principal Musalia Mudavadi has revealed whereabouts of former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto. Addressing a press conference on Monday, Mudavadi dismissed allegations the fifth NASA principal has a rough relationship with the coalition.
He stressed that Ruto is in good terms and was still active in spearheading the NASA agenda. “I would like to assure you that we are in touch with Governor Isaac Ruto. He has assured us that he is firmly on board and we have apologies for him. We have no doubt that he is firmly with us but he is handling a few issues,” Mudavadi indicated. In his response to Kenyans, Ruto noted he would not ditch NASA for the Jubilee Party. “I am Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader.
How can I defect to another political outfit? Jubilee has not approached me but I have seen things blown out of proportion on social media,” he stated. Ruto criticised those peddling lies about his next political stand after losing to Governor Joyce Laboso. He pointed out that he conceded defeat but that does not mean the election was free, fair and credible since he did not see any results signed by his agents.
“I am in NASA to stay. I have decided to maintain a low profile to allow Bomet people to settle. I know the election was marred with a lot of irregularities since government machinery were used to intimidate my supporters,” said Ruto. He indicated it was too late for him to go to court to challenge the election.
