Both leaders have expressed interest in running for president and are viewed as front-runners in the hotly contested election to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Raila is attempting to compel the country to elect him rather than persuade them as should be the case, according to him, which will result in his failure.
"No election can be won by force. You can't force Kenyans to vote for you; instead, you must persuade them "According to Citizen tv, he said this in Kibra, Nairobi.
He stated that Raila is the one who has been encouraging young people to storm his campaign venues and stone opposition figures (Raila).
This is not the way to win elections, according to Ruto, who advised Raila to focus on selling his manifesto to Kenyans and let him sell his as well.
"Stop abusing the kids by utilizing stones for construction rather than beating each other. Stones will not constitute the next government; sell your views to Kenyans in the same manner that we are selling ours " he added.
