Deputy President William Ruto has challenged politician who vie for the country’s top seat in 2022 to be ready to concede defeat if they lose.
At the same time Ruto has dismissed those linking his countrywide development tours to 2022 campaigns saying he is entitled to serve all Kenyans.
The deputy president who presided over the launch of universal health care in Narok threw a political salvo at those he says have been criticizing his ongoing development tours.
In defending his development tours the DP says 2022 elections is four years away telling his political detractors to focus on development matters rather than empty politicking.
The DP said he is ready to battle for the country’s top seat in 2022 urging those who will lose to be ready and willing to concede defeat.
He warned provincial administrators against inciting the public against each other saying those found culpable will face the law.
The deputy president was accompanied by Narok Governor Samuel Ole Tunai, Joseph Ole Lenku of Kajiado county and their Bomet counterpart Joyce Laboso among other leaders.
