Deputy President William Ruto has dispelled the allegations that Kimilili Member of Parliament Didmus Barasa has left his camp.

The DP while on an interview on Jalang'o TV on March 25, 2021, stated that the Kimilili legislator is still a firm member of his camp, alleging that the MP is just wary of the political tension.

DP Ruto revealed that he had lunch with Barasa at his Karen residence, stating they are on the same page.

The DP described Barasa as a determined leader, who has traversed many challenges to become a leader in his region.

"I ate lunch with Didmus yesterday. We had a good talk. It's just little political temperatures here and there, but he is a firm hustler," DP Ruto stated.

"When I first started working with him, I did not know that he would win. He worked hard, and won," the DP added, referencing Barasa's election as Kimilili MP.

The DP dispelled allegations that his camp was scattering, declaring that they are firm and determined to transform the country.

He stated that the loses in Kabuchai, Matungu and Machakos do not indicate a failure on UDA's part, rather, a move in the right direction.

Barasa last week announced he would be taking a sabbatical from national politics and focus on developing his region.

He stated that he would be willing to work with leaders who have Western Kenya's best interests at heart.
