Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto has reiterated the stance on why he joined Opposition pact NASA clearly stating that he is not interested in becoming its flag bearer.
"I am only focused on bringing development to marginalised areas. I am not in a hurry, I shall launch my presidential ambitions in 2022".
The former Council of Governors chairman accused the government of poor devolution policies adding that it has misplaced its priorities.He said that instead of focusing on real-time economic growth, the government has given a lot of its attention to real estate and other projects that do not directly affect citizens in a positive way, dismissing assertions that the Kenyan economy had 5.8 per cent growth in 2016.
"The government must understand the common needs of its citizens, people are suffering everywhere but all we hear is investors and real estate. How does that solve the difficulties of the people who are struggling?" He questioned.
Mr Ruto strongly believes that he will retain his gubernatorial position and said that he does not fear being bundled out of his seat.He also urged political leaders to shun tribal politics which are detrimental to the country's development saying that a person from any community can lead as long as they are in the right mind.
