'Ruto Ruto' William Ruto Receives Heroic Welcome at Raila Odinga's 'Bedroom'

After reports of planned booing by Migori governor Ochilo Ayacko on the deputy President on Saturday, Ruto received a heroic welcome in the area received by the governor Okoth Obado. Multitudes came out in large numbers to welcome and catch a glimpse of his motorcade en route to Awendo SDA chanting Ruto! Ruto!.

The Nyanza region is perceived Raila Odinga's political base 'bedroom' and the reception surprised many. 

Ruto attended a meeting with the region's 2022 aspirants through the UDA party. In the meeting, an old man got the attention of many after promising Ruto a basket of votes come 2022. He said that the region was tired of being used to demonstrate.

"I thank God because I caught a chance to shake hands with you the DP, if I had not I would be lynched getting home. We are tired of being used to throw stones, Migori is tired come 2022 I promise you 60,000 votes," he said.

William Ruto has been traversing the country in search of votes and the reception has been breathtaking especially in regions highly associated with other leaders. Barely a week ago ODM presidential candidate Jimmy Wanjigi was stoned by goons after bad-mouthing Raila Odinga.
