We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

United Democratic Alliance presidential aspirant William Ruto says politics of deceit fronted by those opposed to his presidential journey will not cow him.

Deputy President Ruto made the remarks while touring the towns of Ongata Rongai, Kiserian, Matasia, Ngong’, and Embulbul in Kajiado county on Monday evening.

Ruto was accompanied by his running mate, Rigathi Gachagua, ANC leader, Musalia Mudavadi, Ford K leader Moses Wetangula and a horde of the aspirant and sitting MPs aligned to UDA.

The DP asked the voters in the Kajiado North subcounty if they agree with him in picking Gachaguia as a running mate and he was hit with a thunderous “Yes” from the thousands of people who waited for him until the night of Monday.

“The day of reckoning is here, I have picked my running mate and we are hitting the road with a big bang. Politics of deceit will not cow us and the millions of Kenyans supportive of our dreams of turning around the economy of this country,” said Ruto in Kiserian.

Gachagua told the people of Kajiado North to reject Martha Karua and Raila Odinga because they are projects of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“President Kenyatta tried to take us to his side from the DP’s UDA party but we, as elected MPs, said no to his doctrines. Do you think Karua will convince you to follow Raila?” asked Gachagua.

A thunderous crowd, that braved the cold night weather in Ngong, said no.

Gachagua told the people of Kajiado that UDA leadership had spoken with MP Katoo ole Metito, who is also the gubernatorial aspirant of the party, and agreed that he will pick one of their own as running mate.

“We have talked with Katoo and agreed that Kajiado belongs to all Kenyans living it. Those spreading hate speeches against others should be arrested by police and charged,” said Gachagua.

He told the mammoth crowd that Katoo will give them a deputy governor so she/he will represent their interests in the next Kajiado county government.

At Embulbul shopping centre, Ruto said the contest in the August 9 general election is now framed. 

“It is those keen to change the constitution to share power among a few at the top versus those who want to remodel the economy to uplift millions of Kenyans suffering from the harsh situation,” said Ruto. 

He said: “The Bottom-Up is our plan. I thank the people of Kiserian, Matasia, Ngong, and Embulbul for agreeing to support our plan to grow our economy from the bottom.”   

Others who accompanied Ruto into the night in Kajiado included MPs Alice Wahome (Kandara), Aden Duale (Garissa Township), George Sunkuiya (Kajiado West), Kimani Ichung’wah (Kikuyu), Majimbo Kalasinga (Kabuchai), Onesmus Ngogoyo (Kajiado North MP aspirant), a host of MCAs and aspirants were present.
