Raila set to receive ANC defectors in Nairobi as DP Ruto heads to Kiambu

At the same time, Deputy President William Ruto will tour Kiambu on Thursday as he popularizes his 2022 presidential bid.
His packed day begins with a stopover in Gichagi, Uthiru, at around 10am, after which, he will head to Kinoo where he is expected to among other things, commision the Mama Ngina and HGM Schools as well as the Kinoo shopping centre.
At around noon, the second in command will be in Zambezi, Kikuyu before leaving for Kiambaa, with a stop-over at the Muguga Market.
He will thereafter wind-up his day with several stop overs in Limuru (Kabuku and Ngecha), as well as Kabete (Wangigi and Kikuyu Town).
Elsewhere, presidential contenders Jimi Wanjigi and Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka will be attending a rally in Kabati, Kitui.
