Ruto talks about IEBC
Deputy President William Ruto yesterday toured Embu county. He has been touring parts of the country helping young people and women.
As he was addressing the crowd at Embu town, Ruto said that he does not care about who will chair the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
According to Ruto, it is the people who will decide who the next President will be and not the IEBC chair.
“Anyone can assume the leadership of the commission. We are ready and have confidence in our independent institutions,” Ruto said
“They can fix any chairman or commissioner they want for the IEBC. But they must accept the outcome of the results,” the DP added.
According to Tharakanithi Senator Kithure Kindiki, those aganst Ruto’s 2022 ambitions can appoint whom they want.
“But they cannot stop an idea whose time has come. This is the time for the ordinary Kenyans to define their future by having a leadership that is pro-poor,” Kindiki said.
Ruto went ahead and urged leaders to unite and work together for the purpose of serving Kenyans. He urged them to stop dividing innocent Kenyans on basis of tribal lines.
“We must eliminate politics that divide and create hatred and enmity among Kenyans. We must insist as a people that we want politics that unite and bring the people together and focus on the development of our nation,” he said.
