DP Ruto implored on the residents to say no to politics of deceit saying his rival in the forthcoming election is only interested in creating positions.
He said Raila’s only agenda is to revive the BBI, create political positions for his allies while Kenyans continue to suffer.
Mudavadi said as leaders they have taken note of the needs and projects Kenyans want prioritized, among them reviving the once thriving pyrethrum sub-sector and the agriculture sector as a whole.
He said they will continue holding county-by-county forums to listen to the people on what their priority needs are.
