DP Ruto issues a Major Statement After his Successful Kisumu Meeting.

Deputy President William Samoei Ruto has issued a statement after visiting Kisumu in what is seen as a charm offensive tour to woo the vote rich region to vote for his presidential bid in 2022 general elections. Kisumu is among the six Nyanza counties that are perceived as Raila Odinga’s stronghold.

The DP met grassroot leaders from the elective areas in the populous county who promised to mobilise residents to support him in next year's polls.

"We are breaking political and ethnic barriers so that we can agree on our priorities. Our engagement today with grassroots representatives from the seven constituencies of Kisumu County offers us a rare chance to facilitate Nyanza Region to produce more rice, fish and sugar that will save thousands of jobs and reduce our annual import bill by about Sh180 billion." stated DP Ruto in his official Facebook page.

He further engaged more than 1,000 youth from Kisumu Central, Kisumu East, Kisumu West, Muhoroni, Nyakach, Nyando and Seme Constituencies at the Susan Owiyo Arts Centre Kisumu County.In the meeting they deliberated and agreed that youth issues must be part of the country’s development plan.
