Deputy President William Ruto has asked Gatusndu South residents this morning to talk with their neighbour President Uhuru Kenyatta to stay away from the campaign trail so that he can beat his main competitor Raila Odinga in the August presidential poll.
”I am urging you to speak with your friend and neighbour President Kenyatta to stay away from the presidential campaigns. Kindly ask him not to cut off my legs with the same knife that I used in protecting him in the previous two general elections. Ask him not to extend support to that man full of riddle talk (Raila Odinga), ” Ruto said.
The DP requested the president’s constituents to remind him of the 2012 ICC prayer rallies across the country, some of which were attended by Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
”Remind him that he and I knelt down to be prayed for by the clergy and his mum, Mama Ngina Kenyatta. Even if he doesn’t want to help me in my quest to become president, kindly ask him to stay out of the presidential campaigns so that I can defeat Raila Odinga,” the DP added.
DP Ruto is currently touring Kiambu county alongside Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi, his Ford-Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang’ula, MPs Moses Kuria (Gatundu South), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira), Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu), Alice Wahome (Kandara), among others.
