Deputy President William Ruto yesterday met MPs from Bungoma, Kakamega and Trans Nzoia in a meeting believed to lay ground for the 2022 polls.
But the DP said the meeting at his Karen home was meant to discuss development and address problems facing residents in the three counties.
“We met to strictly discuss development,” Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu said.
Yesterday’s meeting comes after the DP met leaders from Coast, Meru and Nairobi in the last four months. He has toured the Coast, Western, Rift Valley and Mount Kenya in the same period.
The meeting is also seen as Wetangula realigning his allegiances following his ouster as the minority leader in the Senate.
Wetangula promised he won’t go down silently and setting up meetings with Ruto could be his fighting back.
