Tharaka Nithi Governor Samuel Ragwa has warned the Jubilee Coalition leadership not to take sides in the nominations for the governor’s seat in the coming elections.
Speaking at Kathwana during Jamhuri Day celebrations, the governor accused local Senator Kithure Kindiki, who is the Coalition’s majority leader in the Senate, of intimidating him.
Kindiki has endorsed current Chuka Igambang’ombe MP Muthomi Njuki, who has declared his interest for the governor’s seat.
“Kindiki should not think that Jubilee belongs to him,” said Ragwa, who vowed to stay in Jubilee despite the increased opposition to him by local leaders.
“There are people who think that the party belongs to them. In the 2013 general elections I supported President Uhuru Kenyatta and I will do the same in 2017, and thereafter I will support Deputy President William Ruto in 2022. Those who are thinking that I will walk out of Jubilee are mistaken,” Ragwa said
