Former Roads Minister Franklin Bett has urged Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter, his Kuresoi South counterpart Zakayo Cheruiyot and Council of Governors Chairman Isaac Ruto to come easy on Deputy President William Ruto. The trio have been relentlessly criticizing the DP for his perceived lack of bite on the coalition government.
Mr. Keter has vehemently opposed the standard gauge railway project saying that it is mired in corruption. Mr. Franklin Bett is quoted by The Standard as saying “As members of the Kalenjin community, we are dismayed with the recent war of words between prominent URP leaders. The recent trading of insults and threats are disheartening and this should come to an end immediately.” Keter has in the past bashed the Jubilee government for being skewed in appointments in favor of one tribe.
