I’m not leav­ing the op­po­si­tion, the peo­ple want me in Cord, Wan­galwa tells Ruto

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Western -

Bu­sia Deputy Gov­er­nor Kiz­ito Wan­galwa has told his old friend Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto that he has no plans to join Ju­bilee.

Wan­galwa ac­com­pa­nied Ruto dur­ing his county visit on Satur­day. Ruto presided over three fundrais­ers in Bu­tula and Matayos sub­coun­ties.

He also opened a CDF of­fice in Teso North.

Speak­ing at Bukha­lalire Boys Sec­ondary School dur­ing a fundraiser, Wan­galwa said he is in ODM to stay.

“Ruto, you are urg­ing me to join you in Ju­bilee, but Bu­sia res­i­dents have told me to stay put in Cord. That is the of­fi­cial po­si­tion,” he said.

Wan­galwa re­called the good times he had with Ruto at the Univer­sity of Nairobi.

“De­spite our close friend­ship that spans decades, I will be the last per­son to for­sake the res­i­dents who have given me di­rec­tion,” he said. Bu­sia speaker Bernard Wa­malwa and other county of­fi­cials wel­comed Ruto to the county.
