Hate me for no reasons, am not backing down- Ruto


Deputy President William Ruto has assured his critics that he is not backing down in his journey to state house.

Ruto said his opponents have shown hatred against him despite having wronged none of them.

Ruto said he will not back down in ensuring the low income earners are accorded the much needed economic attention.

Speaking at Gatura in Gatanga Constituency during a church fundraising and economic empowerment tour in the area, Ruto said he is not surprised by those who have ganged up against him.

He said he doesn’t regret working with Kenyans at grass roots level to ensure they are uplifted economically.

“I am not surprised but actually disappointed, I only urge Kenyans to closely work with us and keep the faith so that with God’s grace we realise our dreams,” said Ruto.

The DP said most of those in top seat enjoyed his support and that he has been very instrumental in their political journeys.

“I helped ODM leader Raila Odinga to become Prime Minister, I did the same to Uhuru Kenyatta to become president when many other politicians abandoned him, so let’s remain focused,” he told Gatura residents.

According to the DP who earlier attended church service at AIPCA in Gatura, the church should also support the course of uplifting Kenyans so that they rise to defend leadership that cares about Kenyans.

He said ‘Hustler team’ is ready to ensure Kenyans get the required leadership that will focus on the growth of every Kenyans.

Ruto who was in the company of atleast 15 Members of Parliament among them Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro, Nyali MP Mohammed Ali, Kandara MP Alice Wahome, Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata, defended the ‘Hustler Nation’ movement saying it has no incitement agenda.

“We are not here to incite Kenyans but to ensure we all walk in the same lane and ensure even that ‘Mama Mboga’ is uplifted economically,” said DP Ruto.
