It’s Not a Must I Be a Presidential Candidate, DP Ruto

May 24, 2019

Deputy President William Ruto says it is not written in stone that he will be Jubilee Party presidential candidate in 2022.

Speaking on Kameme FM’s breakfast show Thursday, Ruto maintained party members will sit down as a party and decide on a suitable flag bearer.

“If I will not be the flag bearer, I will support the person who the Jubilee Party members choose as their presidential candidate. It is not a must I be the candidate,” Ruto said.

At the same time, Dr Ruto insisted he is not owed any ‘political debt’ by anyone. He said he will not allow Kenyans to fight along ethnic lines again.

“I will have nothing to do with any politics that will cause Kenyans to be in acrimony.”

Ruto further noted one of Kenya’s main problem is leaders who do not accept defeat in polls.

“If I will be defeated as the Jubilee presidential candidate, we will go to the opposition. We will not unsettle Kenyans with court cases and demonstrations and swearing-in,” the DP said.

Ruto also castigated the “Kieleweke” team for spreading propaganda that businesses in Central Kenya will suffer under his administration.
