Deputy President William Ruto has urged the Luhya nation to vote for Jubilee in the upcoming elections with a promise to pick Water Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa as his running mate in the 2022 general elections.
Speaking in Bungoma County where he took President Uhuru’s re-election campaign on Monday, the Jubilee Party deputy leader told the Western region Community that their chance of having one of their son clinch power in the future was by supporting Jubilee, pledging to name Wamalwa as his running mate in the 2022 presidential contest.
“My friends, I ask you to support us as we are in this together. You have a realistic chance of winning. I will pick Eugene as my running mate and when I complete my term, I will support him to ascend to the top seat,” the Deputy President said.
Ruto said that it will be an uphill task for opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) to win in the August 8 polls because they lacked a plan for the country and urged Bungoma residents not to vote on the losing side.
“No one votes with the intention of losing. This is why you should vote for Jubilee as it is destined to win the next election because of its clear vision and agenda for this country,” said Ruto.
The Deputy President poked holes at the NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga development record, adding that the former Prime Minister has nothing to show, despite being in power for over three decades.
