Deputy President William Ruto requests President Uhuru Kenyatta together with ODM leader, Raila Odinga to stop inciting people against him instead support his presidential bid.
Ruto says that in 2007, he supported Mr Odinga’s bid, an election that caused the formation of the coalition government.
He said he contributed in elevating Mr Odinga to prime minister in a violent election, “that led to my prosecution at the International Criminal Court (ICC)in the Hague.”
“While I was at the ICC, the person I was fighting for did not even visit me,” Ruto said in Busia yesterday.
In addition, he said that Raila had never held any senior government position since they parted ways.
Ruto also said that Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Amani National Congress Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula of Ford Kenya has failed to support him win election.
“After coming back from The Hague we joined hands with President Uhuru Kenyatta and together we won the election.” Ruto said.
“Mr Kenyatta became President while I his deputy. I again supported Mr Kenyatta in 2017.Even after the Supreme Court nullified his victory, we won in the repeat presidential contest,” he said.
Dr Ruto in his views feels that it is good for Mr Uhuru and Mr Raila to give him a thank you for the good job.
“It should not turn out that I was only a very good person when I supported them to get those positions in the government,” he said.
“When my turn comes and the hustlers turn comes, they incite the public against me.I want them to appreciate the support I gave them. Ruto added.
He also said he is prepared to compete the forces against his presidential ambitions.
I know they are standing in my way, but they should know that I am prepared to lead the hustlers, “Ruto uttered.
At long last he led a fundraising to the Boda bodas in Port Victoria Budalangi where he contributed 1Million for each group where he was accompanied by Bumula MP Mwambu Mabonga, Malava’s Malulu Injendi and former Teso MP Mary Emase.
Thanks for the few votes
Ruto thanked the people of Busia for voting to Jubilee in the past General Election.
I came here with President Kenyatta to ask for your votes in 2017.
Even though you voted for ODM overwhelmingly, I say thank you for the few votes you gave us,” he appreciated.
He gave a concern that the handshake between Mr Odinga and Mr Kenyatta in March 9, 2018 gave rise to BBI but interfered with Jubilee Development Agenda.
Such agendum include creating jobs for youths, putting up technical training institutions in each constituency, reviving and reconnecting railway lines, tarmacking roads and connection of electricity to every region.
“We were working on those projects but BBI scuttled everything. Some projects even stalled, “he regretted.
“When I become president in 2022,” Kenyan small scale traders would be funded through the National Government Constituency Development Fund. he promised.
As if that was not enough, he added that every constituency would be given given sh 100 million for loans to help micro enterprises and boost revenue generation at the grass roots.
