Accompanied by United Democratic Alliance party (UDA) foot soldiers in the Western region, the deputy president William Ruto held a meeting with women groups, youth and Bumala residents in general early today in Busia County.
As he his convoy passed through back to Sugoi after the meeting, Ruto passed through Bumala market, in Butula Constituency. Unexpected, other youths groups and women were eagerly waiting for him in the streets of Bumala shopping market.
The joyous crowd blocked DP Ruto's Convoy of vehicles asking to adress them if he pleased. His vehicles could not pass through the huge crowd scrambling to get near to his car. Ruto gave in to the demands and emerged from the top of his campaign vehicle to adress his supporters as he waved.
As usual, Ruto asked the crowd to support his presidential bid while accusing his main competitor's trickle down approach to solving problems facing the economy and Kenyans at large.
Shouts an ululations could be heard from the crowd throughout the time Ruto was giving his speech. All Ruto did was to smile back.
His security detail were forced to alight from their vehicles to try control or rather push back the crowd to clear passage for the convoy. They hang on the sides of the vehicles to prevent the crowd from blocking the road again.
Ruto is a two day campaign tour to the western region. Boniface Khalwale and Didmus Baraza are some of the politicians helping Ruto to UDA in western Kenya.
