According to Ruto who heads the Chama Cha Mashinani party, he will not interfere in the running of the county.

“Count on me. I will not interfere with your leadership. It is your time to lead and I will only come in to support where possible,” Ruto said as quoted in the Star.

The two met during a thanksgiving and Prize-giving Day at Chelsa Academy on Saturday, December 6.

Noting that theirs was a normal competition with a winner and a loser, Ruto said his loss should not be interpreted to mean there is enmity between him and Laboso.
