Deputy President William Ruto is very angry with Members of Parliament allied to his Tanga Tanga faction, Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter has sensationally claimed.
According to Keter, the DP is furious after Jubilee party Kibra candidate McDonald Mariga was defeated in the by-election held on Thursday.
Mariga finished second with 11,230 votes behind ODM's candidate Imran Okoth who was declared MP elect after registering 24,636 votes.
In a tweet on Friday, Keter claimed Tanga Tanga legislators told him Ruto was angry with them because he spent Sh1.2 billion to campaign for Mariga in a bid to upset ODM party leader Raila Odinga in his perceived 'bedroom'.
"I met my colleagues MPs who are in the tangatanga squad, they were mourning and they said their boss was very mad with them for failing to deliver in Kibra even after using Sh1.2B for the by-election, which is equivalent to Sh109,000 per vote for the 11,000 votes," Keter said.
Ruto and his allies have been on the receiving end over claims of voter bribery and buying identification cards from marked ODM supporters.
Homa Bay Woman Representative Gladys Wanga alleged that Tanga Tanga spent Sh200 million in the last two months in Kibra campaigns.
"I have learnt reliably that in 2 months, tangatanga spent close to Sh200M to take over the bedroom. Each of the 11,000 votes cost a whooping Sh18,000 of stolen money. What a pity!" Wanga tweeted on Friday.
