Deputy President William Ruto has blamed his opponents for frustrating his 2022 presidential bid.

The DP said that his opponents are using all means to derail his journey to State House.

“They can close roads and churches, but that will not stop us … in the journey for the liberation of the ordinary citizen, there is no retreat, no surrender,” the DP said on Sunday afternoon at the Full Gospel Church in Kieni.

Ruto was speaking in Kieni after goons barricaded the road to stop his convoy from accessing the church. Two church meetings, where Ruto was the main guest, were also cancelled to frustrate his Mount Kenya campaigns.

“Those opposing my church meetings are courting trouble. Respect the church,” Ruto said.
“They can close roads and churches, but that will not stop us … in the journey for the liberation of the ordinary citizen, there is no retreat, no surrender,” Ruto said.

Ruto continued to drum support his bottom-up economic model. He said that it will focus on uplifting farmers and small businesses, among others.

“I want to assure them that the journey to the liberation of this country so that we can first attend and plan for the ordinary citizen, the jobless, people who run small businesses, the many farmers who are struggling; that journey to ensure Kenya is changed and millions of citizens have an opportunity to climb the economic ladder, there is no retreat and there’s no surrender. We are marching forward,” he said.

The DP was accompanied by senator Susan Kihika (Nakuru), Rigathi Gachagua (Mathira MP), Kimani Ichung’wa (Kikuyu MP) and Ndindi Nyoro (Kiharu Mp) among others.
