Ruto to hold rally outside Uhuru’s Gatundu South home at Ichaweri

By Justus Karanja

In what is being interpreted as provocation, Deputy President William Ruto and his United Democratic Alliance (UDA) brigade are headed to Gatundu South constituency where they plan to hold a rally outside the country’s first president, Jomo Kenyatta’s gate in Ichaweri.

According to reports, an emboldened Ruto has resolved to face President Uhuru Kenyatta head-on following his endorsement as the UDA presidential ticket and is opening a new war front with the Head of State.  

The roadside stops started at Kenyatta Road – off Thika Road, Kimunyu trading centre, Gatukuyu, Gituamba, Mutomo, Ichaweri and Gatundu town  among other areas.

At Ichaweri and Mutomo stops, a high-ranking member of UDA from Kiambu County revealed the DP has instructed his lieutenants to talk about the land dispute the First Family is entangled in with locals.

Ruto’s visit to Ichaweri is of great political significance.

It is also the first after his fall out with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The last time Ruto was in Gatundu South was four years ago.

 Today is accompanied by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria (Chama Cha Kazi), Musalia Mudavadi (Amani National Congress leader), William Kabogo (Tujibebe Wakenya Party) among other leaders.
