Isaac Ruto and Gideon Moi criticise DP Ruto, say he is a dictator
Kenya African National Union (KANU) leaders have strongly criticised Deputy President William Ruto saying that his leadership style is to blame for discord within Jubilee.
Led by Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, the independence party blamed United Republican Party (URP) for using dictatorship in its leadership which they say infringes democracy of its members.
Speaking during a fundraiser in Laikong Secondary School in West Pokot County, the KANU team asked Kenyans to support them during the 2017 elections.
Senator Moi urged the Pokot community to join hands with the rest of the Rift Valley residents in electing one of their own and dismissed.
The senator rubbished Deputy President William Ruto’s plans to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta once he completes two terms in 2022.
The event was graced by Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto who used the platform to criticize Ruto for the manner in which he is handling Rift Valley leadership.
Accusing the DP of totalitarianism, the governor said that URP had lost support in the region.
Isaac Ruto refuted claims brought forward that the DP is a kingpin terming such views as outdated. Instead, he said that leaders should concentrate on ensuring development is brought to the common man.
West Pokot Senator Professor John Lonyangapuo, Embotikir MP Johana Ngeno , Baringo County assembly speaker and KANU secretary general Nick Salat were among the leaders who attended the function.
The KANU leaders hinted at unveiling a solidified team in the coming 2017 general elections, and they asked Govenor Ruto to join them.
