NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 1 – – It’s not factual that Former Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has decamped to President William Ruto political bandwagon.

A social media account had indicated that Wambugu had moved to support President Ruto as he lamented that supporting Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Leader Raila Odinga cost Mt Kenya Leaders their political seats.

Wambugu is among the leaders who failed to clinch their seats in the 2022 general election using President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee Party.

“Supporting Raila Odinga costed Many eloquent Leaders from my Kenya their seats. With their weak runningmate @marthakaruawho couldn’t even bring 1000 votes. We have no apology. No debt. We move on with President Ruto for two terms,” the account under the username Hon Ngunjiri Wambugu  tweeted.

We move on with President Ruto for two terms.— Hon Ngunjiri Wambugu, CBS, MP fun (@BrianMOfficial_) November 19, 2022

The Fact Checker has however established that the account is fake and not the genuine account of the former lawmaker even though it holds his username.

Wambugu went further to the account after several media houses fell for the sentiments tweeted in the fake account.

Using his official twitter account, he called out the media who fell for the fake information terming the account FAKE.

“… @ntvkenya … Yaani you didn’t even see the tweet you are quoting isn’t in my name!”he tweeted.
