Ruto attends Msambweni MP Bader's homecoming party


Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday attended Msambweni MP Feisal Bader's homecoming party.

Bader was on Tuesday last week sworn-in as a Member of Parliament days after clinching the seat.

The short swearing-in ceremony was presided over by National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.

Bader, who contested as an independent candidate, trounced ODM candidate Omar Boga after garnering 15,251 votes against Omar’s 10,444.

The by-election which arose following the death of Dori was seen as a battle between Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga.

Ruto threw his weight behind Bader after the ruling Jubilee Party announced that it would not field a candidate.

This is the first time for the DP to set foot in Msambweni since backing Bader.

He is expected to unveil his future plans for Kwale.

The DP is expected to mark the New Year in the white sandy beaches of the county.

Ruto was accompanied by Governor Salim Mvurya, his deputy Fatuma Achani, Lunga-Lunga and Kinango, MPs Khatib Mwashetani and Benjamin Tayari, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Kandara MP Alice Wahome among other national leaders.
