By DPPS/JOHN WERU,3RD JULY 2017-Deputy President William Ruto on Monday took Jubilee party to Bungoma county ahead of the August General Election.
Mr Ruto addressed rallies in Likuyani, Ndalu, Kapsokwony, Mumias, and Malava grounds in Bungoma and Kakamega Counties respectively; asking voters to back the Government whose agenda was to transform the lives of Kenyans.
He said it would be an uphill task for the National Super Alliance (Nasa) to win the August elections because they have no plan and agenda for Kenyans.
Mr Ruto cautioned the electorate against voting for those he said were more concerned about creating positions for themselves as well as dividing the people on ethnic backgrounds, with the aim of wooing their support, at the expense of uniting them.
The Deputy President said Kenyans want to have a peaceful election in August 8, so as to elect leaders and parties of their choice based on their development track records.
“There is no way Raila Odinga who has served in government for more than 30 years including being the country’s Prime Minister and who has nothing to show in terms of development can beat Jubilee which has in only four years initiated many projects which have been felt by the people,” said Mr Ruto.
Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa (Water and Irrigation), Governor Kenneth Lusaka (Bungoma), MPs Robert Pukose (Endebes), John Waluke (Sirisia), Reginalda Wanyonyi (Women Rep) and Benjamin Washiali (Mumias East) were present.
Mr Wamalwa told off Nasa co-principal Musalia Mudavadi for claiming that leaders from western allied to Jubilee were traitors.
Governor Lusaka told the people of western to review the work of leaders before making informed choices come August 8, saying leadership was about service delivery and not mere politicking.
“I want to ask voters in this area that it’s only this Government that has demonstrated its commitment to solve the problems facing us. We should therefore vote it come August so as to be with the rest of Kenyans supporting the winning team,” said Mr Lusaka.
Mr Waluke said residents of Western Kenya are more enlightened and have decided to support Jubilee because of its development agenda for the region and the country at large
