The deputy president William Ruto will be making his first stab at the presidency in the upcoming general election when over 20 million kenyans will be going to the ballot.
Having fallen out with his boss, Ruto is now campaigning on the platform of economic revolution targeted at empowering kenyans at the bottom of the economic pyramid as enshrined in his manifesto which he launched on June 30.
In a bid to explain his manifesto to kenyans better, the DP has granted an interview which will be aired by KTN news on Thursday this week whereby he is going to be hosted by star anchors Sophia Wanuna and Zubeida Koome.
Unlike his competitor Raila Odinga of azimio la umoja one Kenya alliance who was interviewed recently alongside his running mate Martha Karua, Ruto will appear alone.
This has elicited reactions from some Netizens with others like captain wondering loudly the whereabouts of Ruto's running mate Rigathi Gachagwa.
Captain: What of his Deputy? Or we wait for the women affairs debate ya deputy presidents. Mrs. Rigathi Mucere.
Other kenyans took to online stating their expectations and possible questions they want the DP answer.
Kevin Kibet: Q2: Can you commit to commemorating the 2007/8 post-election violence by:
1. Guiding the making of physical memorials
2. Gazetting a national holiday
3. Commit to amending school curriculums to include PEV.
4. putting in place restorative justice initiatives for victims.
