The Jubilee Deputy Secretary General and Cherangany MP Joshua Kutuny has hinted at supporting Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking during a funeral in his constituency on July 20, Kutuny said that he will follow the wave of his community, even if it means changing his political stand.
“Elders told me never turn your back on the community, I will not betray my community, do not worry about my current political position. I am here temporarily,” the Jubilee deputy decretary denera told mourners.
Additionally, Kutuny confirmed that he is just in Jubilee Party to suit his current interests, and this may soon change.
“When I visited Mzee in the hospital he told me not to betray the community. I assured him that it can’t be me, Arap Kutuny, who can betray the community,
“I am just in the field hunting. I am in agreement with the decisions of the community,” he said.
On the occasion, Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago hailed MP Joshua Kutuny for finally seeing the light.
“Do not loiter too much until time catches up with you…Just know, it is the wheelbarrow that we will use,” the governor told him.
It will not be surprising if the Jubilee deputy secretary genera join DP Ruto’s camp considering the Rift Valle region is largely William Ruto’s political bastion.
This is a period of political migrations, and DP Ruto himself confirmed that many leaders are in Jubilee for survival, and are waiting for the opportune moment to join his UDA camp.
Recently, Laikipia Woman Representative Cate Waruguru, a fierce supporter of President Uhuru shifted to DP Ruto’s camp.
While declaring her support for Ruto’s Presidency, Waruguru said that she has assessed the situation in her jurisdiction, and many Kenyans are on Ruto’s side.
Before Waruguru’s decamping, another Uhuru ally, Gathoni Wa Muchomba had also defected to Ruto’s camp.
She also stated that her decision was influenced by her electorates.
