DP William Ruto on Friday held talks with Jonathan Bii at his Karen Residence.
Bii is a leading front runner in the crowded race to succeed outgoing governor Jackson Mandago.
The two political foes-turned friends reportedly discussed a raft of issues including the newly formed national political outfit- United Democratic Alliance Party (UDA)- the new vehicle associated with the Deputy President.
Following the closed door meeting that has got tongues wagging, Bii said they had agreed on the need to reach out to all leaders from across the political divide in the country and more so those from the Kalenjin community to rally behind the Deputy President in his quest for the top seat come 2022.
Bii will be battling with among others Soy MP Caleb Kositany, Speaker David Kiplagat, Veska Kangogo and renowned businessman Zedekiah Kiprop Bundotich (Buzeki) for the county’s top job.
Others eyeing the seat include MCA David Sing’oei and Former Eldoret South MP Peris Simam.
