Deputy President Ruto is doing everything to ensure that he takes over the throne from outgoing president Uhuru Kenyatta and he is currently holding a political rally in Tharaka Nithi County in a bid to lure residents to vote for him as the fifth president of Kenya. While addressing residents in Chogoria, Tharaka Nithi County, he urges president Uhuru Kenyatta to stay away from politics simply because he will not compete with him in the August polls. He revealed that Raila Odinga and Martha Karua did not play any role in him being in office like him.
Mimi sitaki kura yako, nakuomba ukae mbali na siasa. Niwachie huyu mtu wa kitendawili nipambane naye. Mimi nilikusaidia sana. Sasa sikuombi kura, wewe achana na siasa hautakuwa kwa ballot box," Ruto said.
He further declared that he did not abandon any job in Uhuru's government and revealed that Uhuru employed other leaders to take his position. (Time code just before Rigathi Gachagua's speech)
