Politicians allied to DP Dr. William Ruto in Trans Nzoia are plotting to unseat county Senator Michael Mbito and Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny, claiming they are undermining and fighting their boss.
Reliable sources told KB that Ruto allies are not happy with Dr Mbito after he voted for the removal of Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen from the majority leader position at the Senate while Hon. Kuttuny is being accused of working with the DP’s opponents in the Rift Valley out to shoot his 2022 presidential ambitions.
After losing to Korir in 2013 polls, Kuttuny was picked to serve as a political advisor at the Office of the President before he bounced back to Parliament in 2017.
Both Kirwa and Korir are said to be working closely to send Kuttuny home for undermining the DP’s presidential ambition.
Kuttuny has been criticising Ruto’s brand of politics, a move which is expected to leave him with serious political injuries. Dr Pokuse and Chesebeh have as negotiations continue on who between Chesebeh and Henry ole Ndiema should face off with Mbito.
Mbito, Pokuse, Ndiema and Chesebeh come from the Sabaot community where Ruto enjoys huge support.
The move comes amid Jubilee Party purge that has seen president Uhuru Kenyatta strip off politicians allied to Ruto from party and senate positions.
