Asante Ruto# became a big trend following ODM’s loss in both Ugenya south and Embakasi by-elections with many claiming ODM capitalized on fighting Ruto in the Ugenya & Embakasi South by elections and forgot their agenda.
Well in reminder of the times MP David Ochieng used to sing and praise Raila at all costs,we have been cautioned that ‘asante Ruto’ will die as well like the political trend in Kenya.
Awhile back in 2017 Mr Ochieng insisted that MDG is part of the National Super Alliance (Nasa).
But he had to convince the voters even further, more so after Nasa presidential candidate Mr Raila Odinga insisted that Nasa has only five affiliated parties.
“It is wrong for some local politicians to keep on spreading rumors against me claiming that I am a Jubilee mole, I am a strong supporter of Nasa and I fully support the endorsement of Raila Odinga for president,” Mr Ochieng said.
Well today the narrative changed and he is more than grateful for riding on Raila’s rival William Ruto in his new seat win .
During his thanksgiving remarks, Ochieng’ revealed that Ruto supported his campaign which saw him trounce Karan by 4000 votes. Ochieng garnered 18,730 votes against Karan’s 14,507.
“Victory at last! The people of Ugenya have spoken and they have spoken it loudly. I want to take this time to thank the people of Ugenya, Deputy President William Ruto who supported my campaign, my party MDG, and Kenyans who prayed for me during my campaign,’ he stated.
