DP William Ruto urged the Kamba community not to expend their votes on unappreciative politicians who are certain to lose in the next general election.
In a statement in Kitui on Saturday, Ruto said President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee government has everything the country would need to stand as one. He told the audience that he hopes they will vote wisely to favour Jubilee come 2017 because they are focusing on the growth of Kenya and the unity of all Kenyans. He said:
“We are focused and we know where we are taking this country as far as unity and development are concerned.We ask you to join us in this this journey of transforming this country.”
This address comes following the laying of the foundation stone for Ikutha Technical Training Institute construction in Kitui South constituency. Ruto also spoke to wananchi and women groups at Mutomo open grounds after laying the foundation stone for the construction of Mutomo Medical Training College.
“We are ready to work with all Kenyans irrespective of how they voted in the last general election because it our duty to as enshrined in the constitution to serve all.”
While speaking in Kamba, the Deputy President urged the leaders to support the president irrespective of their political differences in order to deal with the public’s challenges.
He hinted that elections come and go, the same as leaders but that development is here to stay. Commenting that politics based on ethnic affiliations no longer exist in Kenya, Ruto said his party’s administration do everything it can to ensure that only the people are considered highly.
Speaking on development projects in the region, Ruto said dams and water pans construction for domestic and commercial use would take Sh4.7 billion in the next financial year.
MPs Rachel Nyamai, (Kitui South), John Munuve (Mwingi North) and Victor Munyaka (Machakos Town) added that they are going to win votes for Jubilee in the region. Revealing that they were lured into voting for the Opposition because the community has always had representation in government, Munyaka said the Opposition’s Cord coalition does not have what it takes to be elected.
Mukurweini MP Kabando wa Kabando urged the co-principal and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka to join forces with the ruling party if he wishes to rule the country eventually.
