Bomet Governor and NASA co-principal Isaac Ruto has vowed that he will deliver enough votes to hand NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga the Presidency in the August 8 elections.
Speaking during an interview at a local radio station on Saturday, Ruto said that he and other NASA co-principals have enough votes to clinch the county’s top seat. According to Ruto, he will deliver Kalenjins votes to NASA as they were seeking for a change from the dictatorial tendencies of Deputy President William Ruto.
He asked NASA supporters to avoid violence during the electioneering period and come out in large numbers to vote for Raila. “Come out and vote for NASA in August. Wacheni kelele mingi (stop the noise and confusion),” he said.
He condemned the killing of Mbita MP Millie Odhiambo’s bodyguard as the scenes that saw her house set ablaze. “We must stop this cycle of violence and the belief that every difference must be sorted with violence,” he said.
The governor said that Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga was bet suited to clinch the Presidency due to his strong stands and political experience.
“We must appreciate the Odinga family. They have sacrificed their lives to bring democracy and fairness to this country. It started with Raila’s father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga. We must celebrate this family,” said Ruto.
