Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday denied engaging in politics and early 2022 campaigns saying that his work is not limited to his office.
Ruto reminded his critics that he was elected to serve Kenyans, and that is the exact thing he is doing.
“Mimi nimekuja hapa kazini, mimi nimechaguliwa kama naibu wa rais, kazi ya naibu wa rais ndio hii mimi nafanya,” opined Ruto.
(I have come here for my work, I have been elected as the deputy president and the mandated job is the one I’m doing)
Ruto hit back at his rivals for dragging politics into service delivery issues.
“..sasa hawa watu wanaingiza siasa kwa mambo ya kazi, siasa bado na ikifika wakati yake sisi tunajua vile ya kuendesha mambo ya siasa,” added Ruto.
This loosely translates to: “those people engaging in politics at the expense of service delivery should wait for the right time upon as we know how to direct political affairs.”
Ruto was speaking after an extensive meet the people tour of the coastal region.
