The Deputy President of Kenya William Samoei Ruto yesterday was in Kisii County.
Ruto met with the deputy governor of Kisii County Joash Maangi, and South Mugirango MP Sylvanus Osoro.
Speaking at Kamel Park while appealing to the Gusii people for support, the DP said the community has come a long way in development and politics.
“Going into the future, we want to pull and work together. Kisii is an important and integral part of the future of our nation.”
Ruto is on a three-day visit to Kisii County, where he seeks to bring the Gusii community on board to support him in his 2022 presidential bid.
He seeks to counter the influence of ODM leader Raila Odinga and Fred Matiang’i ahead of the 2022 elections.
Ruto has taken his war to the doorstep of the Interior CS in a continued attack on him after the minister in Parliament exposed the DP’s vast property and security detail.
“The Jubilee Party which we created got an accident. Visitors came with demons and dismantled our party. When that happened, we teamed up with members of Parliament from here and elsewhere and created another platform that will unify this country and has the character and potential to implement a plan and win a government,” said the DP.
