Kimani Ngunjiri, MP of Bahati has said that Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya has met William Ruto four times rather than once until now.
Oparanya met Ruto on Wednesday, April 7, in Mara, a meeting he said was approved by his ODM party’s chairman, Raila Odinga.
“Oparanya has interacted four times with my DP. All is getting their affairs in order in preparation for the upcoming elections. Oparanya should be left alone. “He is just one Governor,” Ngunjiri explained.
Ngunjiri denied in a press conference on Sunday, April 11, that the meeting between Oparanya and the deputy president was premised on the prospect of an alliance between Raila and Ruto.

According to the county governor, Oparanya was not the leader of the opposition but looked after his own preferences with the 2022 general election in mind. The Tanga Tanga lawmaker maintained that the DP cannot collaborate with the former prime minister because his now-apparently flimsy handshake truce with President Uhuru Kenyatta only demonstrated that he was not good with political marriages.
“Raila is unable to collaborate with others. You will see how they began to mock the President. Look at how, in accordance with their preferences, they have turned against BBI as a result of the planned 70 additional constituencies,” he added.
Ngunjiri said that Ruto’s camp is still happy to welcome voters and leaders with common philosophies as political realignments result from next year’s elections. Earlier, the governor of Kakamega seemed to clear the air concerning his Wednesday visit.
