“I am not competing against Uhuru Kenyatta but he has shown that he has something against me and won’t stop attacking me. We are done with. We supported him in 2013 and 2017, and he should be grateful. Now he is supporting Raila and Martha Karua who were nowhere when we were fighting for him. If he stays away I will easily beat Raila in the elections,” Ruto has said.
