The Deputy President on Friday received a heroic welcome in Kitui County as he popularize himself in the region ahead of the upcoming 2022 polls. The second in command was accompanied by his close allies as he seeks to gain support from Kalonzo Musyoka's backyard in the much anticipated State House race.
While addressing Kitui residents, the Deputy President asked the multitude to join his UDA Party and back his 2022 presidential bid. He blamed ODM leader Raila Odinga for the collapse of the Jubilee Party since his entry to the government via the handshake deal with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The Deputy President also promised that his government will offer employment opportunities to the majority of youths in the region who are struggling to seek employment opportunities.
He also took a swipe at the opposition saying the residents of Kitui have suffered for the last ten years under the dominance of the opposition parties. He urged them to decamp to the UDA party where all their grievances will be tackled once he formed the government.
He also backed his ally Jonathan Mueke who is the former deputy governor for Nairobi County. The ex Kidero assistant is seeking to unseat Kitui governor Charity Ngilu in the upcoming 2022 gubernatorial race.
DP Ruto also continued to celebrate the collapse of the Building Bridges Initiative which he says centered on creating leadership posts for certain politicians rather than addressing the plight of Kenyans.
