A section of CCM officials from Bomet are defending party leader Isaac Rutto for his about turn to support President Uhuru Kenyatta in the repeat presidential poll.

Bomet Central CCM chairman Kiplangat Chepkwony on Wednesday lashed out at “errant” members for attacking the former governor for ditching NASA.

He said the attacks are in bad faith. Chepkwony said it was wrong for the “few selfish members” to seek political mileage by saying Rutto did not consult them.

He said the entire party leadership was aware of the decision.

He accused CCM member Alvin Koech and ODM- nominated MP and Knut secretary general Wilson Sossion of making baseless claims.

Koech claimed Rutto had been lured with cash by Jubilee to abandon NASA. But Chepkwony said Koech and Sossion do not fall within the category of people to be consulted. He said, “Koech is only a member and not an official.”
