As the race to 2022 General Election continues to take shape, several hopefuls for different elective posts are with no doubt, of the opinion that they will carry the day on the election day set for 9th August 2022. The same has been publicly displayed by Deputy President William Ruto who has expressed full confidence that he stands a better chance to thrash his competitors for the presidential seat.
Speaking during a meeting with voters drawn from Muranga County at his Karen residence today, the second in command said that their are only two qualities Kenyans need to consider on their decision on who to vote for come 2022.
"Two things are very important. Kwanza, unatafuta mtu ako na plan. Alafu natafuta mtu ako na track record (You go for a person with a plan and a track record)," Ruto said.
Ruto said that the problem with his competitors is that they don't have even a candidate yet. He claimed that his opponents' candidate is still meandering in some hotel attending interviews.
"Hawana candidate, candidate yao bado ako kwa hoteli anafanyiwa interview (Their candidate is still at some hotel being interviewed)," Ruto claimed.
DP Ruto also claimed that his opponents have no track records and can only tell Kenyans about what they will do if elected, yet they have been I government like him before.
He said that he is the only presidential candidate who can stand strong to explain his track record from being an MP to Deputy President in Kenya.
Ruto mentioned the introduction of Technical Training Institute(TTI) when he was the minister for Education, introduction of subsidiary for fertiliser as a minister for Agriculture and the building of Roads, Standard Gauge Railway and connecting electricity during his tenure as Deputy President as some of the achievements he can be counted for.
"Hawa watu wengine wasikuje ati watafanya hii na hii. Kama ulipewa nafasi na hukufanya, how do we know?" Ruto posed which losely traslates to;
"These other people should not come and tell you that they will do this and this. If you were given a chance and you don't perform, how do we know?"
