Bomet governor Isaac Ruto is beaming with confidence that now he has what it takes to challenge the dominance of jubilee in vote rich south rift region.
Ruto says the ruling coalition should brace for a fight of its life as it is not going to be business as usual claiming that his Mashinani Party is the party to watch henceforth.
And perhaps feeling emboldened by a recent trouncing of Jubilee Alliance Party in Nyangores ward snap poll by a party affiliated to him, the combative Bomet governor has claimed that it is no longer business as usual for Jubilee in the Rift valley.
The Bomet governor has warned that his Mashinani party will carry out major campaigns in the vote rich region rallying the Kalenjin Community to shift its allegiance from Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking at Bomet Green Stadium during at an event to celebrate Nyangores Ward by-election win, the Bomet governor and a section of MPs led by Nandi Hills lawmaker Alfred Keter said the win was a clear indication that residents were fed up with Jubilee and promised a battle royal in the March 7th Kericho senatorial by-election.
The two were speaking alongside West Pokot senator John Lonyangapuo Emurua Dikkir MP Johana Ngeno who together vowed to ensure Jubilee will not hold any more sway in the Rift Valley.
They spoke even as a section of leaders from Narok, decried high levels of corruption in the country. Led by Narok West Mp Patrick Ole Ntutu, the lawmakers charged that there was reason to worry in light of revelations that a Supreme Court Judge took a bribe to influence the outcome of a court case.
The urged the government to come up with a clear strategy on dealing and fighting corruption.
