Deputy President William Ruto has once again won hearts after breaking the protocol to recognise his competitor Raila Odinga and invited his running mate Martha Karua to speak during the National Prayer Breakfast.
"In the absence of my brother Raila Odinga who is also my main competitor in this election, I want to ask my sisiter Martha Karua to come and make few remarks, allow me to break that protocol" said Ruto as he received a thunderous appalud from those in attendance.
"This prayer breakfast reminds us that we are one people despite our political affiliations and different opinions. I am persuaded that we will have a peaceful elections because it is our responsibility to make it peaceful. We must live up to believe that this is just an election and not a process to divide us" said Ruto.
On her part, Martha appreciated Ruto, saying they will all strive to make elections a peaceful one free of any violence.
"We compete with ideas not insults, none of us is perfect but we pray to God to help us have a peaceful elections," said Martha
