I backed Jubilee willingly, says Ruto

Former Bomet governor Isaac Ruto has broken his silence over ongoing rumours of a possible return to government following defeat in the August 8 election. Ruto dismissed allegations that he was promised a job in exchange for his support for Jubilee Party.

He said his decision to back Jubilee was voluntary and he was not wooed with a Cabinet position promise as has been claimed by some quarters. Addressing the press at Kipreres in Bomet East, Ruto said he was still the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader and had not abandoned his cause to champion for success of devolution in the country.

“In CCM, we have elected MPs, MCAs and supporters and we cannot dump them. We are working with Jubilee to ensure all that we were pushing for is realised.” Accomplish agenda He said Jubilee has good plans for the country and needs to be supported to accomplish their agenda regardless of the political differences that exist.

Ruto said there was no need for fights among leaders, adding that he would work with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto for the sake of peace and unity in the country.

“I supported UhuRuto in the run-up to the fresh presidential election because I know as leaders we should be able to live together and accommodate one another. We should be able to solve any differences that exist among us harmoniously,” he said.
