“We, as leaders from the region do not condone deceit and/or conmanship. The decision had nothing to do with the ODM party or any of its functionaries, as some would allege,” they stated.


A section of DP Ruto’s allies led by National Assembly Majority Whip and Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali slammed Tuju, calling for his resignation and accusing him of undermining the DP.

"We should stop this bragging and chest-thumping about who negotiated it. Whoever did that was doing so on behalf of the party and nobody should claim credit.

“It was actually the DP who reached out to this candidate and the leaders of Wajir to broker the deal. Raila had nothing to do with the consultations. The consultations were at the DP level," Washiali stated.
