While coming back to the city after presiding over and concluding a two-day Lower Eastern Economic Bloc Forum at Amboseli in Kajiado County, Deputy President William Ruto surprised residents of Kimana town in Kajiado South Constituency with a brief stop to greet them at around 5:30pm today on September 20th.
The DP who was being accompanied by his allies from different parts of the country met or rather easily attracted a mega crowd at Kimana with thousands of Kajiado residents that were eager to see him surrounding his convoy in a few minutes.
Then as he picked the microphone to address them, he revealed that the plan was to head straight to the city from Amboseli but since the area MP Hon.Judah Katoo Ole Metito had asked him to say "jambo" to his people, he had no option but to oblige.
From the start of his address, it was evident that the DP had been amazed by the warm reception and couldn't hide his joy as he engaged the highly charged crowd in a lively conversation.
Time and again, he asked them questions with regards to his presidency and the kind of person that the residents would wish to vote for come next year as he popularized his United Democratic Alliance party like how he's been doing in different parts of the country.
Then at one point after confirming if those residents were aware of his UDA party, the positive response he received surprised him and literally left him in disbelief.
He just replied with "eh! Na nyinyi inaonekana mko chonjo sana. Hii network yenu iko juu. Yaani mmeshashika radar tayari? Eh! Salaala!"(it you seems you are very alert and our network is very sharp. You are already aware of everything).
That "I was thinking you're not aware of where we are going but it has turned out you are already ahead. Mko mbele sana"
In his address, the DP repeated what he has been preaching since Friday while in Western Kenya and yesterday in Kiambu county.
That he's the best candidate to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta come 2022, his Bottom-up Economic Approach will be a reality and will help tackle this country's economic mess and that Raila Odinga should stop seeing "hustlers" as rubbish.
Below are some screenshots of the crowd that the DP attracted.
