Isaac Ruto explains how he’ll be governor and take up Nasa position

Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has explained how he will take up his position as Deputy Premier Cabinet Secretary.

In the Nasa deal, ODM’s Raila Odinga will be the flag-bearer with Kalonzo Musyoka of Wiper as his running-mate.

The two will become president and deputy president if they win the August 8 general election.

Musalia Mudavadi of ANC will be the Premier Cabinet Secretary (State Department of Internal Security and administration of national Government), deputized by Isaac Ruto (State Department of Devolution and Planning, Finance and national treasury) and Moses Wetangula (State Department of Public Service, Foreign Affairs and International relations).

Appearing on Citizen TV on Thursday night, Mr Ruto said he would still vie for Bomet Governor and then nominate people to take up the positions allocated to him in Nasa.

“The positions have not been reserved for me; these positions are reserved for Chama Cha Mashinani,” he clarified.

“So, I will nominate someone from CCM to take the position of deputy premier cabinet secretary.”

Mr Ruto is, however, swimming against the current in Bomet where he will face stiff opposition from Jubilee’s Joyce Laboso.
