Sources that requested anonymity have intimated to the weekly citizen how DP Ruto felt and almost cried after Kibra By –election loss.
The infuriated Ruto took to the social media, specifically tweeter and blasted his party members who refused to stand with his preferred candidate Mariga.
“We have demonstrated unprecedented resolve in the face of many odds to proudly double our presence in a territory otherwise considered a no go zone and shaming those who betrayed our leader and party,” Ruto tweeted.
Ruto who felt betrayed by fellow Jubilee members who opted to campaign for ODM’s Imran Okoth is said to have refused to see visitors and even chased others away who wanted to console him.
During the much publicised by-election on Thursday, ODM candidate, Imran Okoth whitewashed Mariga by a huge margin.
This is after the DP had promised to teach Raila a lesson in his own bedroom,Kibra.
According to one of Ruto’s aide who requested anonymity, the DP was very bitter with Mariga‘s loss and he cancelled all planned meetings in the aftermath of the Kibra by-election.
“He feels wasted and drained after the loss. He changed his mind and called to say he’d not be receiving any visitors since it was getting late. He was in a foul mood,” the aide stated.
Its believed Ruto is determined to cut the support he has been giving to the Jubilee members who ditched him.
