Nasa co-principal Isaac Ruto ditches Raila for Uhuru – PHOTOS
Former Bomet Governor and Nasa co-principal Isaac Ruto has ditched Raila Odinga for President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Mr Ruto joined the Jubilee brigade for campaigns in Kapkatet in Kericho. Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ng’eno also joined the Jubilee campaigns.
Mr Ruto was part of the Nasa pentagon that campaigned for Mr Odinga in the August general election.
Jubilee’s president Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner but this was overturned by the Supreme Court, which ordered IEBC to conduct a fresh presidential election within 60 days.
Mr Ruto, who sought to retain his seat on a Chama Cha Mashinani ticket, was floored by Joyce Laboso of Jubilee. He said he would not challenge the results in court and failed to appear for subsequent Nasa events.
Former Meru Governor Peter Munya, who vied on a PNU ticket, has since joined Nasa as a co-principal.
