Thursday July 11, 2019 - Deputy President William Ruto has once again defied President Uhuru Kenyatta’s order to stop early campaigns for 2022 presidential elections.
Uhuru, who is in second and his final term, has been rallying political leaders to halt early campaigns and support his Big Four Agenda for Kenyans.
But Ruto, who is eyeing the top seat in 2022, has remained defiant saying his journey to State House in 2022 is unstoppable.
Speaking in Eldama Ravine, Baringo County, the DP explained in Kalenjin that he did not find anything wrong with preparing for the 2022 General Elections
Ruto argued that Christians prepare for the second coming of Christ, without knowledge of when it would happen.
Hence, it shouldn't be a marvel to plan for an election whose date is definite.
“Do you know the date of going to heaven?”
“But you have faith that we are going to heaven?”
“So with this 2022, which we know the date, the week and the month, is there a problem when we plan?” Ruto asked.
“You plan for today and the future … And that is why when we go for these public rallies, they [MPs] say we are in Jubilee and organised for tomorrow.”
“Is there a problem with that?” Ruto added.
