DP Ruto's directive to NASA supporters

"This is the point, my friends."

Speaking hours after the tough talk against violence by President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Ruto has slammed the opposition for taking for granted the ongoing protracted exercise.

“Unfortunately, we are taking this exercise in some parts of the country for granted. People have let others to think for them; but again they have the right to do so,” DP Ruto said.

Mr Ruto has regretted the recent move by Opposition to call for boycott of the repeat presidential elections.

“The will of other has overshadowed their democratic right to vote. But anybody can choose whatever they want. You can choose to stay at home but please give ample time those who are ready to work,” he said.

It helps to demonstrate that the country is anchored on the rule of law and respect for the constitution.

“We had already won the elections, but because of the respect of the constitution, we had to repeat the exercise, that is why we are here,” the DP said after voting at Kosachei Primary School polling centre.

Mr Ruto’s sentiments comes amid fears that police are using excessive forces in dispersing rioting youth in Nasa perceived strongholds in Mombasa Kisumu and some parts of Migori and Kisii.

On Wednesday opposition leader Raila Odinga announced a major meeting slated for today, after launching the National Resistance Movement which he said will act parallel to the government.
