The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

Bomet Gov­er­nor Isaac Rutto has been ac­cused of sow­ing dis­cord among lead­ers and be­ing be­hind a scheme to di­vide the Kalen­jin com­mu­nity. En­ergy CS Charles Keter said the gov­er­nor’s new po­lit­i­cal out­fit - Chama Cha Mashinani – is a tool to sep­a­rate the com­mu­nity and un­der­mine Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto’s quest to unite the peo­ple. “We are try­ing very hard to bring our peo­ple to­gether, but it is sad that some in­di­vid­u­als are out to di­vide us. Let us stop the un­nec­es­sary sideshows and sup­port the DP, be­cause 2022 is not far,” he said. Keter spoke at St Theresa Catholic Church at Mo­gogosiek in Konoin dur­ing a fundraiser presided over by DP Ruto. Gov­er­nor Rutto skipped the event and in­stead chose to at­tend a sim­i­lar func­tion at Kap­long in Sotik. He said he was not aware of the DP’s visit to the re­gion. Rutto hit out at the DP, claim­ing his vis­its to the re­gion are meant to un­der­mine him.
