Diaspora Times -James Rono, Nairobi correspondent. Reporting from Karen.
Initial reports reaching our newsroom indicate that William Ruto has yielded to demands from Mt Kenya MPS aligned to Professor Kindiki to name him as running mate.
The decision was arrived after voting where 118 MPS voted in favor of Kindiki and Rigathi only got 8 votes.
Hon Rigathi to be compensated money spent to popularize Ruto on condition he continues supporting him.
By the time of going to press, all efforts to contact Hon. Gachagua to confirm the same, bore no fruit as his phone was off.
It is believed that Hon Rigathi later mobilized fans to demand Ruto pick him- and more demonstrations are being planned tomorrow in Nyeri and Karatina.
Those close to him say that he is a riot mobilizer- a tendency he was accustomed to while studying at the notorious Kianyaga High School which got its nickname “Kalahari” due to hardships.
Whether Ruto will yield to the demands or go by the MPS wishes, will be revealed by tomorrow.
