Deputy President William Ruto has asked residents of Western Kenya to stop courting the Opposition saying it had nothing new to offer to Kenyans.
Mr Ruto said some of the CORD leaders were in Government previously and failed to come up with tangible development projects for the region.
He urged the Luhyia community to abandon the Opposition and support the Government.
“The Opposition has nothing new to offer to Kenyans. It is only the Governmnet that can solve the problems facing this country,” said Mr Ruto.
Addressing wananchi at Sipala Secondary School in Webuye East Constituency, Bungoma County on Saturday, the Deputy President said the Government has revived Mumias and Nzoia sugar factories as a measure to solving problems facing sugarcane farmers in the region.
