SEE ALSO :How Kutuny united Uhuru and DP RutoMr Ruto said elected leaders should pay their debts through ensuring that they fulfill their pledges and commitments to the electorate. He said whatever their political affiliations, leaders have a duty of uniting and working together in taking Kenya to the next level. “We welcome all forms of support from different quarters; the entire Kenyan fraternity should also join hands and aid the government in making our country better,” he noted. The Deputy President observed that it was time Kenya was put on a platform that is free from hate, ethnicity and divisions, adding that leaders must serve the entire humanity without biases. There has been debate on whether Central Kenya should back Mr Ruto’s 2022 Presidential bid for his support of President Kenyatta in the 2013 and 2017 general elections.

Mr Lusaka called on the members of the public to help the government in the fight against corruption, observing that the vice must be fought, first, by being patriotic. “Bad manners starts from the household when a child steals a spoon of sugar then graduates to stealing a bag full of sugar before he or she brings down an entire sugar factory. However, all is not lost. We need to go back to the days we were patriotic to our country,” said Mr Lusaka. On his part, the Anglican Church of Kenya Archbishop Jackson Ole Sapit urged the church to be on the frontline in the fight against corruption.
