Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri has confirmed that the naming of Martha Karua as Raila’s running mate has complicated issues for Ruto.The MP,who is a diehard supporter of Ruto,said that he was in Mount Kenya yesterday and it seems the situation is changing and support is tilting towards Raila.
Here is what he said from his heart:
“Truth be said, we are losing it in hustler nation. Yesterday I was in Kirinyaga and things were not good. The stadium was half empty. The DP and I have told him, he made a huge mistake replacing Ngirici with Waiguru. We were Embarrassed. My other issue is about Mudavadi? Yes I respect him but what is he bringing on the table? Mimi napenda kusema Ukweli. We could have continued with the hustler Nation the way we were because all Mps that Mudavadi had have all Joined Raila. He is not bringing much on the table and it is even causing tension in Mt Kenya. Our People feel sidelined. I don’t want to talk about Wetangula. As Hustler nation we need to go back to the drawing board and strategize. Yesterday our opponents had two separate rallies and they were so big. What are they doing that we are not doing?”
Ruto’s side has been pushing Raila to name Kalonzo as his running mate.This was to ensure that Ruto locks Mount Kenya against Azimio.It seems Raila’s advisors did a great job by advising him to name Martha.
There was huge silence among UDA supporters after Karua was announced,some even went online to pour their frustrations.
