Deputy President William Ruto has expressed confidence in working with Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya boss Moses Wetangula.
While addressing locals in Eldama Ravine – Baringo County in the company of the two leaders, Ruto noted that they will collaborate together in forming the next government.
“We have agreed to work together…the journey to form the next government has started,” said Ruto.
The second in command added that their unity is not about positions but about changing the economy of Kenya and uniting it.
“If you see Mudavadi here, if you see Wetangula here and many other leaders, we have decided to unite because we want to change Kenya and eradicate politics of hatred.”
The DP also criticized his main opponent ODM Boss Raila Odinga, accusing him of popularizing a false narrative through his Azimio la Umoja Agenda.
According to Ruto, Odinga’s move to introduce the culture of handouts is an insult to the millions of jobless but educated youths.
“These youths don’t want handouts. They want proper empowerment through jobs and businesses,” he said.
Speaking alongside Ruto ,ANC Party leader Mudavadi condemned President Uhuru Kenyatta’s leadership citing economic hardships faced by Kenyans.
This is after the President criticized his move to join the UDA party on Sunday.
“I want to tell my friend President Uhuru Kenyatta that you have a right to be disappointed, but Kenyans are even more disappointed. Kenyans are hungry, have a big tax burden and overcharged. They are jobless and hustling,” said Mudavadi.
At the same time, FORD-Kenya Party leader Moses Wetangula assured to work with DP Ruto in empowering Kenyans though his Bottom-up campaigns.
The three leaders are set to hold campaigns on Friday and Saturday in different parts of Kenya, as they continue to popularize their presidential bid before the August general election.
