William Ruto has expressed optimism that his team will form the next government to succeed President Uhuru.

When was addressing hundreds of Sultan Hamud residents in Kilome, Makueni County Tuesday, the DP said that the next government will accommodate every citizens.

“We have agreed that in this country, no one will be left behind. Every time, they have been telling us to change the Constitution to create a prime minister’s post and to share power. We are telling them this time that before talking about changing the Constitution, let us change our economy,” Dp Ruto said.

Dp Ruto said that the Bottom-Up approach will be realised in his administration, whereby the common citizens will be involved in building our economy. Ruto hit out at his opponents who have been criticizing him for inciting the youth with his manifesto

“When I said that let us start with those who are jobless, before debating on amending the Constitution and sharing positions, is that an incitement? Ruto questioned.

Dp confessed that bodaboda riders, among other small businesses, are paying the taxes to the government, just like other leaders, hence, the need to be involved in government establishment.

He also said that he is well informed about his bottom-up approach, and will not topple since he has been part of the government that developed hundreds of kilometres of roads and electric connectivity and so on.

DP Ruto also added that he is aware of the plans that his opponents have against him, and he is well prepared as well to face them.

Governor Josphat Nanok of Turkana county, MPs Victor Munyaka, Nimrod Mbai, Katoo Ole Metito, Josphat Kabeabea, Mary Seneta, former Machakos Senator Johnson Muthama, and former Nairobi Deputy Governor Jonathan Mueke are among the leaders who accompanied Ruto.
