Raila has been trying to portray Ruto as the enemy of the people due to his stand against the handshake document.
For instance,the Dp's campaign have gained traction in Mt.Kenya so he spread the word that Kiambu lost a lot of money with the downfall of the BBI.
He is determined on depicting the second in command as one who is against the interests of the people and the nation.
According to the standard publication,the DP and his political rival Raila Odinga have taken on each other as the hunt for votes gains momentum.Speaking on different occasions on Tuesday, September 21,each tried to take credit for various projects such as the Standard Gauge Railway.
Ruto,while speaking during a stopover at Emali,said he was the brain behind the SGR and the electricity connectivity that lit millions of homes in the country and that showed he was someone who loved development.
On the other hand,Raila said SGR was a brainchild of the grand-coalition government in which he served as the prime minister,adding that Ruto was just acting and that he wasn't part of any project.
According to the Star,Ruto declared he was ready to face Raila,One Kenya Alliance individually in his race to State House.Ruto said this in an apparent dismissal of President Uhuru Kenyatta's efforts to unite opposition leader whom he has met severally over succession politics.
The Deputy President warned his rivals to be aware that just as they have a plot to prevent him from being the next president,he also has a plan to trounce them in 2022 polls.
