What Ruto Said After Meeting International Observers Led by Ex-Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan

Deputy President William Ruto has told the international observers that his main competitor in the August 9 poll is his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta and not the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga.

Ruto who was speaking on Thursday evening after meeting with International observers who were led by the former Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan, argued that the appointment of Uhuru as the Azimio's chairman speaks volume in the August polls.

"This election is different compared to the past when I and my boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta were on the same side. But this time it is different, from where I sit, I am running more against my boss that his candidate. The president is the chairman of the party which is fronting my competitor."

The DP went on to state that he is confident that IEBC is well prepared to oversee the August polls fairly and transparently, saying that Kenyans have come a lot way and will be making their decisions democratically.

The United Democratic Alliance party leader went on to re-assure that his Kenya Kwanza Alliance will respect the decision of Kenyans on August 9, and will support whoever will be winning the presidency.

"As Kenya Kwanza, we are preparing for a peaceful and democratic elections," he added.
