A looming revolution could throw DP William Ruto in yet another limbo as he seeks to stamp authority in his Rift Valley backyard.

Court of Appeal decision to reinstate Alfred Keter as Nandi Hills MP after losing in High Court could shape politics of the region.

After the landmark ruling by Justice Erastus Githinji, rebel MPs fired shots at Ruto albeit indirectly warning that they will never 'worship' anyone other than God.

"This victory is a manifestation that the days of worshipping certain people are over," said Moiben's Silas Tiren.

He added: "They ejected us from parliamentary leadership and even manipulated court cases. Let them be warned."

In March, Keter accused 'cartels' in Jubilee for ganging against him and even mentioned DP Ruto indirectly of allegedly working behind scenes.

At Eldoret, the rebel MP vowed to fight 'status quo' and warned major revolution in the Rift Valley.

"You can't use your powers to intimidate us. We shall go back to people and handle these issues," added Keter.

On Thursday, Marakwet West MP Kangongo Bowen, also a rebel MP will know his fate after appealing High Court ruling that nullified his victory.
