Political squabbles could be looming yet again on the Rift Valley region despite two rebel MPs surviving at the court of appeal.

Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter and his Marakwet East counterpart Kangogo Bowen were reinstated despite having lost at the High Court.

And the fire brand legislator has yet again picked another war with DP William Ruto, whom he had earlier claimed that he orchestrated their election petition nightmares.

He said: "I am now free to work for my people. There are people who were working hard to throw us out but I've survived."

The historic ruling on Wednesday could ignite a fierce battle between the rebel Jubilee MPs and those loyal to the DP.

Keter, a second term legislator, took a jibe on advisers of the DP who he labeled as 'fools'.

"The DP is a brilliant person. The only problem with him is that he is surrounded by fools. They mislead him all the time."

Evictions being carried out at Mau Forest could fuel the tension between the two camps with Keter promising fireworks soon to 'save' his people.

Also in the rebel camp are Moiben's Silas Tiren and Emurua Dikir MP Johanna Ng'eno.
