On Sunday at the Glory Celebration Centre in Nanyuki town, three Mt Kenya legislators said the DP post will be decided through the ballot.

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Laikipia East’s Mohamed Amin and Kioni warned any leader eyeing the number two position to prepare for a battle royal.

They said some DP hopefuls have planned to kill the aspirations of up-and-coming politicians.

“As Mt Kenya leaders, we have agreed that Ruto will be our presidential flagbearer, but anyone wishing to deputise him must work hard for it,” Kuria said.

“Just like governors, senators, MPs, Woman representatives and MCAs, the DP-to-be will have to be nominated at the ballot.Voters will decide,” he said.
