Bomet governor Isaac Ruto has dismissed claims that his move to opposition alliance, NASA is inconsequential adding that he has a huge following.
Ruto has said he will deliver not less than 1.5 M votes to his new political partners.
“We are not going to split Rift Valley but I am going to look for NASA votes all over the region. This is not about Kalenjins, it is about liberating Kenya," Ruto said.
"There are those who will vote for DP Ruto but several will back me. I will deliver more than 1.5 M votes to NASA,” he added.
The Bomet County governor urged leaders and the electorate to stop focusing on monetary aspects of leadership and prioritize ideas that encourage development.
The fearless governor added that his contribution to opposition coalition, NASA is majorly ideological as opposed to financial.
“I bring in NASA fresh blood, ideologies and strategies. It is not about money but development oriented ideas,” Ruto said.
However, his impact is yet to be seen and the August 8th polls will act as a litmus paper to test his influence in the Rift-Valley.
Ruto was speaking on an Interview on Citizen TV show JKL live on Wednesday night.
