Former President Daniel Arap Moi press secretary, Lee Njiru has joined Tangatanga. Deputy President William Ruto received him at his Karen office.
He worked with Moi for over 40 years and had even shifted his home to Ngata farm to be near Moi. He apparently had a falling out with the sons and was humiliated during Moi’s burial
In developing news, Deputy President William Ruto will start local meetings, and on Friday he will be in Mombasa.
The DP has decided to take his meetings to the grassroots and has divided the meetings into eight locations across the country in what appears to be strategies to boost his popularity locally ready for the 2022 general elections.
Since the ban on public rallies to curb the spread of the corona virus, Ruto has been meeting with his supporters at his residence on Karen Street in Nairobi and his home in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County.
At Karen’s meetings the deputy president has hosted hundreds of his supporters from Nairobi, Murang’a, Kiambu, Nyeri, Kirinyaga and Kajiado counties among other groups. Today he received Lee Njiru at his office.
This Friday, Ruto will be in Mombasa for a two-day visit where he will hold several meetings. He is expected to meet with elected leaders, religious leaders, communities, youth and experts from all six Coast counties; Mombasa, Taita Taveta, Kwale, Kilifi, Lamu and Tana River.
The Coast region has long been supportive of ODM leader Raila Odinga. Nyali MP Mohamed Ali told our news desk that Ruto was going to meet the people of the Coast and listen to them. “It will be a great caravan when Ruto arrives here.
It is basically just a beach activity and there is no politics, ”the Nyali MP said by telephone. “We talk about things. He is a good man and will listen to us. We are a helpless nation and our numbers are increasing. ” The MP said that Mombasa has been abandoned and the people are hurting, “we want roads, good schools, good hospitals but those in the central government have forgotten us.
