“All Jubilee Party supporters should ignore & treat with utter contempt rebels and those rejected by the electorate who now deceptively purport to speak for the party leadership,” Ruto posted on his twitter account.
He also asked the Jubilee supporters to give the party’s flag bearer in Kibra moral support during the campaign period.
“Let’s give Mariga our flag bearer moral, material and prayerful support. Victory is surely beckoning,” he said.
In a viral video making rounds on social media, Shebesh is allegedly heard telling a group of women how President Uhuru Kenyatta was ‘pressured’ to endorse Mariga for the Kibra seat.
“Hiyo siku mnaskia ya kuweka kofia mimi nilikuwa State House kazi ingine na CS. Mimi najua namna ambao waliingia hiyo State House na mlango ya nyuma. Mimi najua vile waliweka pressure ya hiyo picha mliona,” Shebesh said.
She went on to add that the pictures were just a sideshow and asked the audience to embrace the handshake.
