Deputy President William Ruto assured President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga that they would enjoy state protection and immunity should he (Ruto) ascend to power in August 2022.
Speaking in Migori County on Saturday, September 25, Ruto allayed fears that he would retaliate against the duo he has constantly accused of frustrating his efforts to win the upcoming General Election.
He claimed that he is the best candidate suit to ensure their welfare is taken care of.
“I will take care of them without bias. I will ensure they have adequate protection. The police officers assigned to them will ensure they move around and conduct their businesses freely. No problem!
Ruto further asked them to support his bid for Presidency as he supported both of them in previous elections. He alleged that he had the people’s support and was not distracted by Uhuru’s efforts to unite political leaders against him.
“You are all aware that I campaigned for Baba (Raila) and vigorously pushed his agenda in 2007. I ensured he became Prime Minister.
“In 2013 and 2017 I also campaigned for Uhuru. They have now joined hands to ensure I am locked out of the 2022 race. They have unveiled a gang,” he stated much to the delight of the crowd.
