Some Rift Valley MPs and senators allied to URP have declared their loyalty to Deputy President William Ruto following Jubilee’s victory in the Kericho by-election.
On Saturday political leaders from Nandi led by Governor Cleophas Lagat publicly declared their support and loyalty to the DP, saying they will not be swayed to abandon Jubilee.
Lagat spoke during a prize giving day at Kapsabet Girls High School.
Nandi Woman representative Zipporah Kering and Aldai MP Cornelly Serem have also declared their loyalty to the DP.
Ruto has been in Eldoret for the last five days and sources say most governors and MPs in the region have been visiting his home at Sugoi to pledge their support for the DP.
But Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and his Nandi Hills counterpart Alfred Keter have avoided engaging in most functions where other Jubilee politicians have been present.
