Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto taunted the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party for losing the Kajiado Central by-elections to ODM.
The bullish Council of Governors chairman went on to congratulate the people of Kajiado for rejecting Jubilee and said that he will use a different vehicle come the 2017 General Election in what many view as political suicide.
Isaac Ruto has not been seeing eye to eye with the Deputy President William Ruto and the DP is said to be grooming another bigwig to vie for the Bomet gubernatorial seat in 2017.
The governor speaking at Lwak Mixed Primary School in Siaya County during the launch of national deworming campaign for children said:
“I want to congratulate the people of Kajiado for speaking in one voice and shaming Jubilee. They should now know that Kenyans will only vote for leaders with an agenda,”
“With the way things are going, I am not sure whether I will support Jubilee in the next General Election.”

The governor went on to say that Pesa Mashinani drive was moving to the next phase as they had completed the collections of signatures. He said that the Jubilee was kin on killing devolution by reducing allocations to counties.
