Speaking during the rally, William Ruto tells the residents of Taita Taveta that he also belongs to this County.
The Deputy President told the residents that he has two thousand five hundred acres of land in Taita Taveta.
This was not taken well by his rivals as he is now being criticised for having that amount of land in the area. His critics say that he may have grabbed the land from the residents of this area while others are blaming Ruto for his selfish nature. They want him to share this piece of land with those who are landless if he is a hustler as he claims.
Responding to such critics, Deputy President William Samoei Ruto explained to them how he had acquired this parcel of land. Dr Ruto said that he was given these 2,500 acres of land by a former member of Parliament Basil Cristicos after he help him clear a debt he had from Agricultural Finance Corporation AFC.
He, therefore, urged Taita Taveta voters to vote for him in the August general election as he is one of them.
