There was a dilemma as to whether or not to endorse DP Ruto, following emergence of Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i, who is tipped to be eyeing for presidency.

And Kitutu Masaba MP Shadrack Mose was first on Friday to open floor for colleagues, arguing that Jubilee should strictly field Dr Ruto as candidate.

"We shall stand with you no matter the resistance. They told us to support them in 2017 and in 2022, we all agreed it's you," he said amid cheers.

North Mugirango MP Joash Nyamoko took a swipe at Ruto's critics, accusing them of being insincere in their opposition against Dr Ruto.

"When they wanted to get to power, Ruto was clean. Now that it's his time, they are saying he's corrupt. We shall not look back no matter what they say."

Women Representative Jerusha Momanyi also backed Ruto's bid, arguing that he has come of age to take over. Also, West Mugirango MP Vincent Kemosi, said the region will endorse Dr Ruto.

The climax was when Borabu MP Ben Momanyi, a Wiper legislator, said that he will work together with the DP despite opposing Jubilee in 2017.

"I was in NASA and I declined advances from Jubilee. The DP has convinced us that he is equal to task. We shall work closely with him no matter the circumstances."
