William Ruto allies from the Maa community have said they were told to boycott their meeting with the deputy failure to which their security will be withdrawn.

The leaders led by Narok East Member of Parliament Lemanken Aramat said that they are being intimidated for supporting William Ruto’s Bottom-Up economic model.

“We were told that if we attend this meeting our security will be withdrawn. This kind of politics is outdated,” he said.

Aramat sentiments were echoed by his Narok West counterpart Gabriel Tongoyo who said that allies of William Ruto are being targeted adding that as leaders they will not give in to threats meted against them by their detractors.

“They tried to intimidate us in Mt Kenya but we did not accede, therefore do not accept to be intimidated,” he said.

Mathira MP Rigathi Gacagua however warned politicians that they risk losing elections if they accept to compromise their principles and give in to intimidation.

“They have threatened me, arrested and detained me over the weekend, and even frozen my accounts, but I have stood firm,” Gacagua said.

Speaking on Tuesday, October 5, during a meeting with grassroots leaders from Trans-Mara and Emurua Dikirr in Kilgoris, Narok county, the deputy president said that the ‘Hustler Nation’s mission’ of forming a national political party that will unite and transform the country was unstoppable.

“Even the threats, intimidation, and blackmail will not make us retreat in this grand plan to change Kenya for the better,” Ruto said.

The deputy president further appealed to the youth to register as voters ahead of the much anticipated 2022 elections.

“Do not be bystanders. Register as a voter and rally behind a government that will define your destiny,” Ruto said.
