Former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has joined Jubilee party leaders ahead of a campaign rally in Kapkatet, Kericho County.

In photos, the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) Party Leader is seen with several leaders alighting from a helicopter ready for the event.

Ruto, who was defeated by Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso in the August polls, had recently vowed that he would not ditch NASA for the Jubilee Party.

"I am in NASA to stay. I have decided to maintain a low profile to allow Bomet people to settle. I know the election was marred with a lot of irregularities since government machinery were used to intimidate my supporters," said Ruto.

"I am Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader. How can I defect to another political outfit. Jubilee has not approached me but I have seen things blown out of proportion on social media," he added.

He described himself as a 'wounded general' at war, saying NASA is a coalition and that he may decide to join the Opposition campaign rallies or maintain a low profile.
