BY DPPS,NAIROBI,18TH JAN,2022-Deputy President William Ruto has appealed to the youth to take advantage of the ongoing mass voter registration to register and reject leaders known to use youth to cause violence.
The Deputy President said violence is in the DNA of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party citing acts of violence at Jacaranda grounds, Kondele and Busia as some of their handy work in the recent past.
Dr Ruto asked youth to rally behind leaders offering solutions to the various challenges they face and vote out those who only use them to cause violence.
He said: “Violence must be removed from the equation of the elections of the Replublic of Kenya.”
Dr Ruto said the country’s development agenda will be set by those who will win the August polls.
“Register and vote for the right people, the right policies and the right Government. You are the ones to decide. But you cannot decide without a voter’s card.”
Speaking on Tuesday in Lang’ata and Kibra during a development tour of the Constituencies, Dr Ruto said the answer to youth unemployment is hinged on the outcome of the next elections.
