Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok has said his support for Deputy President William Ruto is unstoppable.
He said his decision had been cemented by the fact that it was time the country’s leadership focused on the problems of ordinary Kenyans.
“The wheelbarrow moment is unbeatable. This is the route we are going to follow if we are to change the economic status of Kenyans,” he said.
The Turkana County boss who was elected on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) ticket said it is a new political path that is heavy on development that would help check poverty, negative ethnicity and political hypocrisy in Kenya.
“We are going to work with the Deputy President because it is under him that the poor and small businesses would be empowered,” he explained.
He spoke on Saturday in Bahati, Nakuru County, where Dr Ruto met with grassroot leaders from the Turkana community.
