Deputy President William Ruto has reiterated his stance that no community or region owes him political debt ahead of 2022 elections.
Ruto is eyeing the top seat as President Uhuru Kenyatta terms comes to a close in three years’ time.
Ruto spoke at PCEA Kasuku in Ol Jororok Nyandarua County where he dismissed claims he is demanding favours from Kikuyu community for supporting Uhuru since 2013.
“Those misusing our elders let me tell you I clarified on the debt issue. I am not demanding any debt from any individual, community or region” Ruto said.
On Friday some Kikuyu elders speaking at kabiru-ini grounds in Nyeri said the community owes Ruto no political debt.
Ruto stated; “There is only one debt. And that is the obligation we have with Uhuru to run the government and fulfill the promises we made to the people; that of transforming their lives,”
He was accompanied by Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia and seven other politicians from Central region.
Kimemia however insisted the region will support Ruto’s presidential bid come 2022.
