According to the DP, the project was part of the Jubilee government's wider plan to accommodate agricultural productivity from rain-fed to irrigation. Their second term was geared towards increasing agricultural activity in the country, one they didn't succeed, because "they ran into headways."
On Tuesday, the DP also claimed the reason he and Uhuru failed to deliver their promises to Kenyans was due to sabotage during their second term.
Ruto said that the Big 4 agenda was sabotaged due to the emergence of the March 2018 handshake and the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI).
"We went to handshake, BBI and the rest is history. We didn't get the time to do what we had promised."
"My boss said he wanted to do things differently. He said he wanted to assemble a different group of people to work with," Ruto said.
The DP spoke during Tuesday's presidential debate at the Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) main campus in Karen, Nairobi. His main rival Raila Odinga boycotted the debate.
