Ruto chided the Murang’a lawmaker who gave the amount saying as a gubernatorial aspirant in the county, Kang’ata should give more to the people
He asked Kang’ata to go back and get Ksh 100,000 and donate adding that if he does not have it he was willing to loan him.
“Don’t you want the governorship? No. Ksh 40,000 is not for governor. Go get Ksh 100,000 and bring it. Do not disturb us,” Ruto said as Kang’ata obliged while the crowd laughed.
The deputy president was speaking at Gatunyu grounds in Murang’a during the launch of the Wakili Edward Muriu pesa Mfukoni bursary fund.
In his speech, Ruto hit out at his competitors saying that they are only out to divide Kenyans along tribal lines.
This was yet another of Ruto’s continued attacks on his opponents.
In August, the DP dismissed the formation of political coalitions ahead of next year’s General Election, terming the alliances’ signs of defeat.
He said what Kenyans want is leaders with programmes and plans on the creation of opportunities that will uplift lives of the ordinary people.
“They are using outdated strategies to avoid a defeat. The era of political groupings and endorsements is over,” Ruto said.
“How will I fail to defeat them if you are still coalescing in tribal outfits and with no agenda to take Kenya forward?”
Ruto insisted on the establishment of national parties founded on firm social and economic principles for the meaningful political stability of our country, like UDA.
