Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura has revealed why Kenya Kwanza’s party leader William Ruto is always ferrying crowds in his political rallies.

Isaac Mwaura who was speaking at Citizen Tv during the morning show confessed that politics is all about perception and that is why Kenya Kwanza ferries the crowd just to look popular.

Mwaura went ahead to explain that most youths are available because they lack meaningful employment opportunities and according to him, a young person would rather be paid 500 shillings to attend such rallies instead of just staying idle.

His sentiments come just a day after the Gatundu South member of parliament Moses Kuria made similar comments while on an interview with Citizen Tv on Sunday.

Moses Kuria called out the Kenya Kwanza Alliance for always transporting supporters to all their political rallies especially in the Mt Kenya region.

The Gatundu member of parliament complained how the United Democratic Alliance were using hundreds of buses to transport people from one place to the other to cheer them on and to give a false impression that they are popular.

“I think there is a problem that is happening in Kenya Kwanza which for me I found unfortunate, I vowed never to engage in. Whereby we transport… We are having nine meetings in three constituencies or four constituencies. And then somebody tags along their supporters, their fans… I feel, my position is if I am going for a meeting in Limuru I should go just alone so that I can be able to see whether I got legitimate supporters in Limuru. And that’s what I do,” Kuria said.

“But then my worthy competitors what they do is that they have got tens and tens of buses and lorries and pickups and they transport their fans from one place then they release them and then they go to the next and the next so that they are cheered.” He posed.

Moses Kuria continued: “And the problem is first of all one, that distorts what I call in my other language market dynamics because you don’t really get to know whether you’ve got real supporters on the ground. Second thing what does it do to me who is not transporting these people? You know it looks like it’s a Kabogo versus Wamatangi thing,”
