Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday announced that he  accepted the Jubilee Party’s decision not to field a candidate for the Msambweni by-election.

Ruto said he was of a different view and wanted  Sharlet Mariam Akinyi Onyango to contest the seat on a Jubilee Party ticket.

We have held a meeting with the SG (Raphael Tuju) on the decision made. I am satisfied with the decision. Those who had intentions to use Jubilee Party in Msambweni to use alternative avenues.”

I was of a complete different view that the party should have fielded a candidate. We want to speak from one position as a party, I however sympathize with Mariam who is here,” Ruto said.

The DP said he had not been consulted before the decision not to field a candidate was made.
