Deputy President William Ruto has urged voters to support parties that are above tribal politics in order to achieve national unity and diversity.

Kenya, according to Ruto, should abandon divisive politics because the country's problems extend beyond tribal and class divisions.

He was speaking in Rongo town, Migori county, during one of his stops after youths in Kisumu's Kondele area forced him to cut his speech short after throwing stones at his motorcade.

"We must engage in leadership that is above division and politics; business and poverty goes beyond tribalism and affect all Kenyans regardless of tribe, or colour," Ruto said.

Ruto did not make any direct comments about the chaos, but he did say that the only party that people in Nyanza should support is the UDA, which will bring development.

"We have the party that will bring change across all tribes in Kenya and help us face our challenges as a nation to end youth unemployment and create respectful business for all," Ruto said.
