DP Ruto to President Uhuru: You don't have to worry that I will outperform you

He, however, reiterated that should he win the election, he would not be taking part in any "handshakes", adding that the olive branch between his boss Uhuru and Raila Odinga in March 2018 was meaningless.

"I will not do what happened in 2018, fusing government and opposition, undermining the Constitution and creating hostility," he said.

President Uhuru in March this year accused Ruto of undermining his administration, saying he was hardly in office.

The duo has been going at each other publicly, displaying their disappointment and frustrations.
