Deputy President William Ruto has said that his boss Uhuru Kenyatta did not steal the 2017 elections.
The DP said that the remarks by Murang’a Woman Representative Sabina Chege are a scheme by Azimio to orchestrate violence.
“We will not accept violence. People are claiming Uhuru stole votes. They were nowhere when we were campaigning for Uhuru. They must respect the President,” Ruto said.
The DP was speaking in Nakuru County, where he responded to Chege remarks that the 2017 election was rigged in the favour of the Jubilee Party. He was accompanied by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetangula.

Others were both elected and non elected politicians.

“The people who are talking out loud did nothing to win votes for Uhuru. I did the most campaigns for Uhuru, and I know we won the election fairly. I am not yet tired of seeking this mandate,” Ruto said.
“Our competitors have accepted that we have beaten them in strategy, policies, and plans. Their only plan, that we can’t engage them in, is to steal votes. We are set and ready for this contest.”
“Raila was beaten by Kibaki, we beat him twice, what makes him think he will beat me? We beat them in recent by-elections. On August 9, we will beat them early in the morning, and there is nothing they will do.”
“We are united to rescue the country from those who have taken it hostage. We initiated development projects but the moment we touched on the Big Four agenda they frustrated it. They want to maintain a high level of poverty for them to remain in leadership.”
