We are ready to talk to you - Ruto tells Raila

We are ready to talk, come on board.

Speaking during the burial ceremony of the wife to the former DP Michael Wamalwa, Mrs Yvonne Wamalwa, DP Ruto said that the recent decision by Nasa leader Raila Odinga to hold a swearing-in ceremony was blatantly unconstitutional.

“They (NASA leaders) should not be lying to their supporters. They lost in the election and the next contest is in 2022, let them prepare for elections.

“We must follow the constitution. We are firmly anchored on the law and no is above the law irrespective of who we are, we must submit to the dictates of the constitution of Kenya,” the Deputy President asserted on Saturday in Trans Nzoia.

The Deputy President would later call on the Opposition leaders to engage in dialogue but insisted that any dialogue between them and the Government must be within the confines of the constitution.

“They have said that we must talk, we are ready. But ready to talk about how millions of youths will get a job, how every Kenyan will be covered by NHIF…that is the discussion we want to have.”

He however, made it clear that there can never be dialogue on who “is going to be President or the Deputy President.”

“We are not qualified. It is Kenyans who decides. Once they have decided, just like Chinua Achebe said, God’s case no appeal,” he said.

Ruto said the opposition took long to plan, and that is why they lost last year’s presidential election while challenging them to plan for 2022 instead of giving their supporters false hope.

“I told these friends of mine, but they did not listen to me. I told them, you have taken so long to decide who is your leader until you got late. There is no way you would have competed with us, we were ready all along,” the DP said, in what tickled the mourners.

“We must speak the truth. The next election is in 2022…and if you continue like this, things will not be good for you even then,” he said.
