President Uhuru Kenyatta has backed his deputy Willliam Ruto's 2022 presidential bid.
The President said that Ruto is doing an excellent job and has proved his abilities, acumen and diligence as a leader.
State House Senior Director of Public Communication Munyori Buku said the President has been categorical that his party will support Ruto for the 2022 Jubilee presidential ticket.
"Those haranguing the country over the 2022 election are wasting their time. The President has explained that 10 years of his own term are not long enough to implement the grand plan Jubilee has for Kenya. He has pointed out this super plan needs about 20 years to implement," said Buku.
He said the DP is at the heart of Kenya's transformation through mega infrastructure, energy generation and distribution, quality education, modernising agriculture and industrialisation, among others.

He maintained that the Jubilee administration has brought bountiful peace not only in the Rift Valley, but also in many other conflict-prone areas. The assurance also came a day after TNA Chairman and nominated MP Johnson Sakaja claimed that there were forces within the political landscape that were keen on destabilising Jubilee.
"(Nominated Senator Paul) Njoroge has no authority whatsoever to speak on behalf of TNA or the Jubilee coalition and not on matters that he is not well versed with. He must disclose on whose behalf he made those remarks," said Sakaja.
