To confirm Ruto’s decision of backing Feisal for the Msambweni seat, Mohamed Ali written on his twitter page that the party will support Feisal but as an independent candidate.

“Msambweni Sealed. Team Independent- Feisal Abdallah Bader. Let the PEOPLE DECIDE,” Ali wrote.

In a press briefing at the Jubilee Party headquarters on Wednesday, Ruto said he wanted the party to field a candidate in the by-election slated for December 15, 2020 but after a meeting with a section of Jubilee officials he had to accept the final decision.

“I have had a meeting with the secretary general and his officials here on the by-elections. They have briefed me on the decisions that have been made and I’m satisfied with what they have done.

I was of a different view on the party fielding a candidate in Msambweni but because a decision has already been made and communicated to the public, we will all stand by that decision that those who had intentions of vying on a Jubilee ticket in Msambweni will now look for alternatives maybe run as independent candidates s or in other political parties,” he said.

Earlier Ruto had indicated that he was ready to support Sharlet Miriam but Mohammed Ali’s tweets states otherwise. It speaks more of betrayal.

“Akiniongelesha vizuri na kwa sababu sasa hatuna candidate kule Msambweni naweza kumsaidia,” said Ruto.

Maybe “hakuongea vizuri.”
