After he decided against running for office in Nyanza, the region that serves as the political foundation of his competitor and Azimio leader Raila Odinga, because of fear of violence.
Speaking yesterday at the Kenya Kwanza rallies in Eldoret, Ruto asserted that Raila’s opposition to his efforts to promote his candidacy in the region has prevented him from campaigning in several locations in Nyanza.
The DP claimed he had avoided traveling to the Nyanza region since his vehicles were damaged there the last time he went.
Forget about your RAILA! Ahead of the August elections, RUTO has just dumped Luos and promised never to return to Nyanza.
William Ruto, the vice president, has now severed ties with Luo Nyanza in front of the general election on August 9.
Because my vehicles were stoned, I, the deputy president, am unable to travel to Nyanza, he claimed.
Ruto reprimanded President Uhuru Kenyatta for leaving him and backing Raila Odinga in the race for the presidency at the same time.
After years of support, he questioned Uhuru’s choice to throw him to the side, claiming that Kenyans would pay him back by electing him as the country’s next president in August.
