RUTO tells MUDADAVADI to support UHURU in 2017 and be his running mate in 2022Other Political News, Politics 13:48
Saturday October 1, 2016 - Deputy President William Ruto has told Amani National Congress (ANC) party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, to support the Jubilee Government as a way of returning the favour Mudavadi accorded him during the 2007 General Elections.
Speaking in Vihiga County on Friday, Ruto said if Mudavadi supports Jubilee in the forthcoming elections, he would likely consider him as his running mate in 2022 elections.
“In 2007, I supported Raila and his deputy was Musalia Mudavadi. I campaigned for them but unfortunately they did not make it. For me I played magic and prayed God and am now at number two. Now what I did to Mudavadi you can now reciprocate. Is there a problem in returning a favor?" Ruto asked.
The DP further asked ODM leader, Raila Odinga, to swallow his pride and give young leaders a chance to lead the country.
He said Raila is a political dinosaur who should hand over the baton to young and energetic leaders.
He also urged Kenyans not to trust the opposition with leadership since they are only interested on how to fill their stomachs and not serve Kenyans.
"Those on the other side are still confused on who to lead the party. If they cannot decide on a three man matter, will they be able to decide on matters concerning millions of Kenyans?" said Ruto.
