Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa has castigated COTU boss Francis Atwoli and Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho for claiming that Deputy President William Ruto will not be in the presidential ballot come 2022.
Speaking in Mogotio, Baringo county on Saturday, Jumwa said if somebody feels competent for the presidential seat then they should appear in the ballot and Kenyans will vote.
According to Jumwa Atwoli should appear in same ballot paper with Ruto come 2022 if he feels ready.
“You are saying Ruto will not be on ballot if you feel ready then be on the ballot with William Ruto, Kenyans are always doing the voting,” Jumwa said.
Jumwa, who is a close ally of Ruto asked Kenyans not to take Joho seriously.
She stressed that they know Joho better and he might be talking out of influence.
Joho who had accompanied Atwoli in Lamu said thieves are thieves and only have one name. Joho seemed to hit at Ruto.
