Shun leaders thriving on negative ethnicity politics, DP tells electorate


Deputy President William Ruto has asked Kenyans to shun leaders who thrive on politics of negative ethnicity. He said although Kenyans were free to elect leaders irrespective of their tribal affiliations, they should be wary of those who thrive on ethnicity to divide Kenyans for personal selfish gains.

Ruto said Kenyans should evaluate the development track record of the current government vis-a-vis those who served in the previous ones when choosing leaders.

Addressing wananchi at Poroko Secondary School in Kilgoris, Narok county yesterday, Ruto said Opposition leaders had no capacity to unite Kenyans saying they were engaging in tribal politics.

“It is only the Jubilee administration that is committed to the unity of this country,” he said. Enumerating the government’s projects, Ruto said Jubilee administration has increased the connection of electricity to six million households across the country up from 3.2 million households by the previous governments in the last 70 years.
