Deputy President William Ruto and his team were in Bungoma County on Saturday for the Kenya Kwanza campaigns. While speaking at Posta Grounds, DP Ruto made tough remarks directed at President Uhuru Kenyatta. DP Ruto accused Uhuru Kenyatta of causing trouble to him (Ruto) and MPs allied to Kenya Kwanza Alliance. Ruto said that they (Ruto and his allies) are the ones who helped Uhuru Kenyatta become president. Ruto insisted that Uhuru Kenyatta would not have been the president without them (DP and his team.)
DP Ruto further claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta has allegedly been holding night meetings to influence the outcome of the August 9 General Election. Ruto further accused President Uhuru Kenyatta of using force and threats to campaign for the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
“Nataka nimwambie mdosi wangu Uhuru Kenyatta, umenitatiza sana. Umetuhangaisha sisi tuliokuunga mkono. Umetutesa lakini hatuna vita na wewe. Sisi ndio tulikusaidia ukawa Rais. Ata kama hutaki kukubali, wewe (Uhuru) hungekuwa Rais bila sisi. Na hio ni ukweli.” Deputy President William Ruto stated while speaking in Kiswahili.
“There is no need for you to begin holding night meetings to influence the election. Mr. President, please, you cannot force us to vote for your project. You are using threats against chiefs and County Commissioners to force them to campaign for Raila. ” William Ruto stated while directing the jibes to President Uhuru Kenyatta. Ruto’s sentiments comes barely two hours after telling President Uhuru to leave him alone and not to kill his (Ruto) children while addressing Kenya Kwanza rally at Kapsabet in Nandi County.
