Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday outlined his key strategy towards winning the 2022 presidential election.

Speaking from his Sugoi Home, Uasin Gishu County, Dr Ruto outlined that endorsements do not matter in the race for State House.

He asserted that the sure way to winning the presidency and any other elective seat is through a strong development track record.

"Politics is about planning, and mobilization. There is nothing like this (State House seat) being endorsed, or given.

"I have seen some hanging around, waiting for endorsements. How do you expect to be endorsed for this seat, surely? This one, this, you must work for it," the DP stated.

The DP's remarks seemed to have been sparked by recent remarks by top Jubilee party officials, David Murathe and Raphael Tuju.

The two party officials implied that President Uhuru Kenyatta and the ruling party were under no obligation to back Dr Ruto's presidential bid.

DP Ruto insisted that even without the political backing, he is the best candidate for the job.

"I am ready to battle with anybody. Let my competitors put on the table what they have done for this country," the DP stated.

He hosted a section of politicians from the Western region at his Sugoi Home on Wednesday who included Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong, Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka, Bungoma Woman Rep Catherine Wambilianga and a host of MPs.
