DP Ruto in Ukambani tour

Deputy president William Ruto in his campaign tour in Ukambani region came to the rescue of a student who was set to join form one but was stuck due to finances.

Rose Kavindu Mutuku the student raised the issue with the deputy president telling him his mother was not able to raise the required Sh50,000 required for his admission.

Ruto after seeing the admission papers for the girl said he was going to see help her through her secondary education. The DP offered Sh200,000 saying the cash was going to see her through the four years in secondary school.

"You can hear the mother saying this child has not reported to school because school fees have been a challenge. I want to pay her school fees for four years. Go pay and let this young girl study," DP Ruto said.

The DP insisted that no child should remain at home while others were on with schooling.

The deputy president had taken his campaigns to Machakos county where he traversed the county accompanied by Machakos governor Alfred Mutua alongside other Kenya Kwanza coalition leaders.

The deputy president castigated the Azimio la Umoja leaders for trying to trick emerging parties into signings agreements they had no idea about.

“I want to ask you, do we still have leaders that want to get leaders to sign agreements they have no idea about in this age?” the DP retorted.

Earlier while welcoming Kilifi governor Amason Kingi to his party, the deputy president said the Azimio coalition held their deals in deep secrecy and deceit noting that the Kenya Kwanza coalition was open and transparent.

"So there is a world of a difference between us and the other side. The other side use force here we use respect. The other side are deep in secrecy, and deceit. Here we are open, transparent coalition of Democrats the free and the willing," Ruto said.
