Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua has warned Kenyan not to support Deputy President William Ruto since he has no good intentions for them.
Speaking at Mutomo where he was hosted by Governor Ngilu, Mutua termed DP Ruto as poison that can easily kill the people when elected as the president of Kenya. Mutua told the residents that Uhuru who was a close friend to Ruto and wore marching outfits together has rejected him and no Kenyans should risk voting for him.
“Uhuru Kenyatta brought Ruto to us, when they were forming the government they were together wearing matching red ties and suits you could think that they are like husband and wife. Uhuru said ‘yangu kumi na ya ruto kumi’ but after Uhuru learned the real character of Ruto he withdrew his support,” Mutua said.
He added that Ruto was rejected by Uhuru and he publicly endorsed ODM leader Raila Odinga meaning that Uhuru knew that it was dangerous to leave the country to Ruto.
The Machakos county boss also added that all the leaders that worked with Ruto in the past later came to reject him giving an example of the late Daniel Arap Moi and ODM leader Raila Odinga who at one point worked with Ruto.
“The late Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi took Ruto as his child, took him to school and taught him politics and made him YK-92 leader and later was made a minister but when Moi was at his deathbed and Ruto wanted to see him, Mzee Moi said the doors should be closed and he shouldn’t see him because he said Ruto is poison. Why did he reject him and Moi was the one who brought him up?”The Governor went on.
Mutua also questioned what made Ruto fallout with Raila and they were together forming Pentagon, “Raila left him at the Pentagon which they had formed because he saw that Ruto was a venom, Uhuru Kenyatta has also rejected him, we people should also reject him because he is a poison,” Mutua insisted.
Mutua called upon the Kitui residents to support leaders who will bring development to them and reject political failures adding the only way to get development was to support Azimio la Umoja which will form the next government.
