On Friday, while Ruto campaigned in Nyandarua, his allies said that their resolve to back him for the top seat was unstoppable.
They said that they will not submit to threats and intimidation aimed at them with the intention to support ODM party leader Raila Odinga.
The MPs who accompanied the DP in his tour said the use of state institutions to threaten and intimidate them will not stop them from supporting Ruto.
They included Faith Gitau (Nyandarua), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Kindiki Kithure (Tharaka Nithi), Alice Wahome (Kandara), John Kinyua (Laikipia), Kimani Ichungwa (Kikuyu) and Wanjiku Muhia (EALA).
Gachagua said a section of state officials were abusing their power by coercing leaders and the people to support Raila.
“We will not allow the police and provincial administrators to dictate to us the direction we will take as a people of Mt Kenya,” Gachagua said.
