"Ruto Hasn't Been Campaigning' Waiguru Says, Reveals The Main Reason The DP is Likeable in Mt Kenya

Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has defended Deputy President William Ruto over claims he has been campaigning for presidency for the last four years after his boss President Uhuu Kenyatta unveiled the handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga.

According to Waiguru, what the DP has been doing is like what MPs, MCAs, the governors and Senators do when they are not held up in their respective offices, and move around to inspect the government projects and engage with their supporters.

In an interview with TV 47 on Tuesday, the former Devolution CS stated that the DP has won the hearts of Mount Kenya Region residents owing to the fact that he is available and can be reached easily when they want something done.

"If you look at the history of the DP, he has been going to churches and meeting the people. It is his way of doing politics and it is a style that has paid off, because people feel that he is accessible and he listens to people. This can be seen by the number of MPs who left Jubilee and went with him. Meeting the people is not campaigning, just doing your job," said Waiguru.
