BY CORRESPONDENT,NAROK,20TH NOV 2018-Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday launched the Universal health c average in Narok county where he also urged leaders to stop the 2022 succession debate and focus on development.
The DP said those worrying about 2022 should stop since the next election is many years away.
“Stop 2022 anxiety, when the time comes we will compete. When the time comes we will do the exam and those who pass will to continue with work and those who fail let them go home,” Ruto said.
“Why are they worried? When we get there we shall battle it out.”
Ruto said many people are uneasy with him traversing the country on a development agenda, yet he has a job to do as a DP.
The deputy president also waged into the perennial fighting that have been witnessed in Narok in recent day and urged those who are bent on dividing people on tribal basis to stop.
“There is no need of dividing people along tribal lines, that is the highest level of idiocy. Politics of impunity should end,” Ruto said.
Ruto said the Opposition is now working with the government, therefore, politics of ethnicity and hate should stop.
He warned public servants not to take part tribal clashes and should instead create harmony.
The DP unveiled a CT scan centre at the Narok County Referral Hospital.
Ruto later conducted a goat auction to raise funds for the Universal Health Care programme.
The livestock auction realised Sh19m towards this initiative, which will cost Sh6,000 per family annually.
