KIKUYU’s have the numbers - RUTO to KALENJIN elders


Thursday November 30, 2012 - Eldoret North MP William Ruto told Kalenjin Council of elders that the reason for him joining Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta is because the Kikuyu community forms largest voting bloc in the country.

Addressing more than 3000 Kalenjin elders on Wednesday, Ruto said  by joining other presidential candidate other than Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta it will be a gross miscalculation for the Kalenjin community.

He said he made a move of uniting with Uhuru after realising they share the same ideologies of uniting and reconciliation their communities.

Ruto, who is also the United Republican Party (URP) leader further said they will ensure the next elections ends in round one to minimise costs of a run off.

Ruto and Uhuru have already signed a pre-election deal and it will be formalized on Sunday at Afraha grounds in Nakuru on Sunday.

Uhuru is running for the Presidency and Ruto his running mate.
