Deputy President William Ruto has hit back at ODM leader Raila Odinga and Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka for plotting to unite against his 2022 bid instead of presenting their agenda for the country.
“I heard them saying that they want to unite so that they can beat Ruto. I want to tell them, let them look for policies and development agenda to sell to Kenyans. Uniting to beat someone cannot help anyone,”DP Ruto said on Saturday.
Raila and Kalonzo on Friday hinted at reuniting ahead of the polls to defeat ‘thieves’ during the burial of former Kibwezi MP Kalembe Ndile.
But Ruto, speaking in Tala, Makueni county, told them to look for an agenda to woo Kenyans, warning that he would beat them at the polls if they don’t have proper development policies.
“You cannot just unite merely because you want to defeat somebody. What if you don’t defeat him? What will happen? And you don’t have an agenda? As a husler nation we’ve an agenda for our country to ensure our citizens have jobs, entreprises, decent lifestyle” he posed.
Ruto challenged the duo and those coalescing around them under Nasa to collapse their parties and form one formidable vehicle to face him next year.
