Nyamira Governor Amos Nyaribo has stormed out of Mudavadi’s Bomas Convention, claiming that he was not briefed about the coming of Deputy President William Ruto and his UDA entourage. His exit came just after OKA Principals Gideon Moi and Kalonzo Musyoka left the venue in a huff after Ruto’s arrival.
In a statement posted on his social media platforms, the county chief stated that the sole purpose of the conference was to announce Mudavadi as the party’s flagbearer and not what it degenerated to. He added that, prior to the event, Mudavadi had vowed to endorse him as the ANC deputy party leader, a promise he did not live up to.
“The main agenda of the NDC was to endorse H.E Mudavadi as our presidential candidate. In the NDC, H.E Deputy President William Ruto and members of his UDA party arrived at the meeting. The arrival of DP Ruto and his UDA entourage was not part of our agenda. Consequently, I and other leaders including OKA principals walked out of the meeting,” he posted.
The county head averred that he cannot subscribe to any political discourse geared at supporting the Ruto-led UDA party. He authoritatively stated that the interests of his constituents are better addressed in the Raila led Azimio La Umoja movement.
“Our interest as the people of Nyamira County and as a nation are better addressed through the Azimio La Umoja initiative. Following the unfortunate incidence, we will be issuing further political direction in the coming days,” Nyaribo added.
