Deputy president William Ruto on 18th September 2021, revealed why President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime minister Raila Odinga, decided to betray him, despite him having supported them in previous elections.
DP. Ruto stated that, he supported ODM party leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid in 2007, that saw him almost being locked up at Hague-based ICC, after he was falsely accused to crime against humanity following the post election violence of that year.
Ruto further added that, in 2013( a) and 2017(b), he mobilised his supporters to vote for Uhuru Kenyatta and saw him becoming 4th president of the Republic of kenya.
The second in command has pointed out that, Uhuru and Raila have betrayed him simply because of the simple and humble background where he comes from and that his father was never known like theirs.
“Now, they have teamed up to lock me out of the presidency, claiming my father was a nobody in Kenya. Even the kid of a single mother can become President in this country. Let them go away.” Ruto pointed out
Ruto said this while addressing the residents of kakamega who turned up in large to hear what the second in command had to say.
He has promised kenyans that the way he helped Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila to achieve their dreams is the same way he will help a common mwananchi to achieve their goal in life through the bottom up model when he becomes the 5th president of the Republic of kenya.
