Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Peter Kenneth has finally gathered strength and named Deputy President William Ruto by name, as the person who ensured he lost the Jubilee ticket for Nairobi.
The former Gatanga MP named Ruto as the mastermind behind a rigging scheme that denied him the ticket. He said that the DP planned all this while at the Jubilee party headquarters, where he had been sent by the president to take charge of things.
“We did not lose the Jubilee Party nominations because my opponent was assisted by somebody high up in the Party hierarchy,” he said. “Our opponent was assisted by somebody who wanted to cut me to size politically…and lets not cheat ourselves, that person is Mr Ruto,” he added.
Peter Kenneth was speaking at Mlango Kubwa in Mathare constituency, where he held a town hall meeting.
He went on to narrate how Ruto ensured he lost.
“The ensured they voted twice, thrice, ten times, and the worst case was where an individual voted a record 51 times,” he told the crowd.
Sonko has extended a hand to Peter Kenneth urging him to return to Jubilee so they can work together, but PK has flatly refused the offer. “Mr Sonko knows he can’t run this city that is why he has acquired a new image of donning suits every day. He may have a new suit everyday but his brains and thinking remain the same,” PK added. “Even with new suits, Mr Sonko has not changed; he is merely hiding behind those suits.”
