The DP is among the top political figures who have declared their interest in succeeding President Uhuru Kenyatta and has been working towards realizing it.
On Wednesday, he said that he too will be coming up with his own alliance, a team he said will be made up of people he believes can help him better the living standards of Kenyans.
He said that the coalition will be informed by his hustler nation campaign, and will have everything Kenyans are lacking in the already existing alliances.
“That is why we are activating the coalition of the people with ideas through the hustler nation. This will advance the allocation of more resources at the base of the wealth pyramid," he is quoted by The Star.
Ruto spoke when he hosted 400 grassroot leaders at his Karen residence, where he also challenged fellow leaders to also come up with reasonable alliances.
He stated that Kenyans are not interested in being taken back to the days when tribal kingpins came together to form alliances, stressing on the need for unions based on ideologies.
“We must be transformative in our thoughts. Gone are the times when Kenya was led by tribal chiefs,” he added.
He spoke a day after Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula (Ford Kenya), Gideon Moi (KANU) and Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) announced their upcoming coalition.
They made the announcement in Matungu and Kabuchai constituencies, where Moi, Ruto's sworn rival in their Rift Valley backyard, expressed confidence that their team will form the next government.
