Cherang’any constituency Member of Parliament (MP) Joshua Kutuny now says he has not yet decided on who to campaign for between Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition party flag bearer Raila Odinga and United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Presidential candidate, Deputy President William Ruto.
Speaking to supporters in Chepsiro, Kiptoror area, Kutuny alluded that after soul searching, he has resolved to concentrate on his re-election politics.
“People don’t eat politics; I have personally worked for Mwai Kibaki, Uhuru Kenyatta, Raila Odinga and William Ruto. I have realized they’re all the same, that’s why I have decided to look for my own votes” Kutuny said.
Kutuny speaks on important elective positions
The outspoken lawmaker further highlighted that the gubernatorial position, Member of Parliament (MP) and Member of County Assembly (MCA) positions are the most important elective seats because they are in touch with the electorates.
“As an experienced politician and an expert in matters politics, I have learnt that the position of Member of Parliament, MCA and Governor are the most crucial, the President’s seat is an added advantage” he added.
At the same time, Kutuny asked the locals not to be bothered by his perceived political inclination and his friendship with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“At the top of the pyramid, I know you have already decided whom to vote for as your President. Don’t worry with me, I’m still loyal to President Uhuru Kenyatta until he hands over power to the next President” he said.
Kutuny, who has been under constant attack from UDA leaders and supporters, also assured the residents that he will support and work with whoever is elected as president in the August polls.
“If your candidate wins, I will support him, I won’t abuse him. Again, if his competitor who is my friend wins, you’ll also be safe in his government through me” he stated.
The Jubilee Deputy Secretary-General will face off with former Member of Parliament Wesley Korir (UDA), former Chief of Staff of the County Government of Trans Nzoia Patrick Simiyu (DAP-K), lawyer Benson Milimo (FORD Kenya), John Njuguna and Joshua Kipkorir Kosgei who are running on independent tickets.
