Ruto hints at quitting 2022 presidential race

Deputy President William Ruto has hinted at retiring from politics if he fails to secure the 2022 Jubilee presidential ticket.

Speaking on Thursday during a breakfast show on Kameme FM Ruto pointed out that he is not owed any debt by anyone concerning 2022 elections.

“If I will not be the flag bearer, I will support the person who the Jubilee Party members choose as their presidential candidate. It is not a must I be the candidate,” Ruto said.

However the DP stated that he believes Kenyans are not foolish and will vote for him come 2022.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta and I are in Jubilee and we are delivering. We are now in exams and Kenyans will mark the test come 2022 that is why I’m moving in all parts of the country initiating development projects,” he said.

On the issue of referendum, Ruto said that the Constitution is for all Kenyans and not for few individuals who want to share leadership positions among themselves.

“I’m not opposing Constitutional change but I will only be involved if the referendum agenda will be based on improving the livelihood of 45 plus million Kenyans and not to the interest of few self-centered politicians,” he said.
