Former Agriculture CS Kiunjuri warns politicians against depending on DP Ruto to finance their campaigns

Former Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri has warned politicians not to rely on Deputy President William Ruto to finance their political campaigns.

Kiunjuri who said that he will be supporting William Ruto in the next general elections made it clear that he would only back him up through his party; The Service Party.

He explained that he could wait for the DP to pick him as his running mate so that he can use his finances during the campaigns but it would be a mistake.

“I have spent a lot of my money, millions, and spent a lot of time building the TSP. I could easily have waited for the DP to pick me as his running mate and use his choppers and money to campaign but that is foolish and Mt Kenya politicians must avoid that mistake. You cannot count on what you do not have and there is always a problem when you are given free things,” the former CS stated.

Kiunjuri whose party now has opened a total of 27 offices in 27 counties, revealed that he had talked to DP William Ruto and he agreed to pick someone popular from the Mt. Kenya region as his running mate.

“I talked to Ruto and we agreed he will pick a running mate from Mt Kenya region that will be most popular. If it will be me, Ichungwa, Moses Kuria, or anybody else, I will support it. Until that day comes, I want to build the TSP because, through it, I can challenge the DP to look into Mt Kenya issues.”

“If I become his Deputy President, I will have a weapon to fight back because as you can see from this government, things can always go wrong. If you look at the Revenue Sharing standoff, most of the Mt Kenya politicians around Ruto are afraid to tell him the truth and that is, he has failed us,” he added.
