“What case do we have with Maraga? Did we take Kisiis to court? We don't have a problem with Kisiis..the only thing we said is we had an issue with the judgment. Raila is spreading propaganda that Jubilee is fighting Kisiis,” said the Deputy President.
Earlier, elected leaders and politicians from the Gusii community present at the meeting promised to campaign for President Kenyatta in the repeat presidential elections.
Some of the leaders who addressed the meeting include Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, who urged the community to vote for President Kenyatta.
Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama assured President Kenyatta that the community will back his re-election in the October 17 elections.
Former Constitution of Implementation Commission Chairman Charles Nyachae said the community has opportunity to double the number of votes they gave President Kenyatta in the August 8 General Election.
The Chairman of People Democratic Party Omingo Magara said his party had made a decision to support the President and urged the community to follow suit.
Kitutu Chache North MP Jimmy Angwenyi asked the President to appoint more members from the community in his government, assuring him of their support in the repeat elections.
Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga assured the President that she will marshal Kisii women vote for him in the repeat poll.
President Kenyatta has in the recent past attacked the Supreme Court headed by Justice Maraga over its decision to nullify his election.
The President and his deputy have questioned the reasoning of the nullification of their win and threatened to “deal with” the Judiciary should they be re-elected.
There have been protests in part of Kisii and Nyamira counties to defend the CJ.
