Isaac Ruto launches his Chama Cha Mashinani party

By Marie Yambo

Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto officially launched his Chama Cha Mashinani party calling on Kenyans to join the party he says will give alternative leadership in the country.

While launching the party on Saturday at Siongiroi grounds, Chepalungu constituency in his Bomet County, Ruto said he will not join the Jubilee party.

He cautioned leaders allied to the Jubilee party not to intimidate those who want to join the new party.

The launch was not devoid of politics as the Governor together with other leaders in attendance launched a scathing attack on the Deputy President William Ruto.

The governor accused the DP of allegedly insulting leaders from the region during his recent tour of the area.

The governor also took issue with the DP’s commissioning of street lighting projects in the county which he said were already installed and paid for by the county government.

Emurua Dikkir MP Johana Ngeno called on the deputy president to avoid making enemies, saying that he will need them in 2022 during his presidential bid.
