Kajiado East MP, Peris Tobiko, now blames state operatives for creating a wedge between her family and Deputy President William Ruto.
Tobiko confirmed on Saturday what she said at Ilpolosat on Friday that ever since she announced her intention to move to United Democratic Alliance Party, she has never had peace from security agents.
On Friday, prior to the Deputy President’s visit to her home at Ilpolosat area of Kajiado East constituency, Tobiko’s husband Kishanto ole Suuji went to Isinya police station to report a complaint that DP William Ruto was visiting his home without his consent.
The local police told Suuji the meeting at his home in Ilpolosat had been allowed to take place and therefore they cannot stop it as requested.
When Tobiko was invited to speak at her home by Nominated Senator Mary Seneta, she said she had never had peace from the time she announced she would be crossing over to UDA.
“The police, NIS and all others have been trailing me. My family members were even told to hold a press conference and say they were not aware of the DP’s invitation to my home,” the MP said.
On Friday, Tobiko told the DP that she will not die too many deaths like a coward, but she will fight those attempting to block her way and will of becoming the next Kajiado governor.
She told the DP that she planned her political journey ahead of joining UDA after consulting widely, and therefore, her decision is final.
She said that she was not moving to the DP’s party to seek direct nomination so as to get a ticket for the governor race, but to get free and fair nominations against others interested in the seat.
The MP said Kajiado county receives Sh10 billion every year from the national treasury but that “it is unfortunate that the money has not transformed the lives of the voters”.
She told the DP that when he forms the next government, he should build tarmac link roads in Kitengela to beat the current incessant traffic jams.
Tobiko also requested the DP to consider building a tarmac road on the Isinya/Konza road.
Those present at the Ilpolosat meeting included MPs Seneta, Soipan Tuya, David Ole Sankok, Janet Teiya, Liz Chelule, Jematia Sergon, Anab Subow, Iman Falhada, Mohammed Ali, Silvanus Osoro, Beatrice Nkatha, Rehema Namasa, Kimani Ichung’wah, Iman Falhada, Gathoni Wa Muchomba and Rigathi Gachagua.
