Kenyan Deputy president William Samoei Ruto has claimed that as the second in command, there are a number of things he misses such as window-shopping.
Ruto while speaking to radio presenter Jalang’o in his #BongaNaJalas show said that being a deputy president Is not easy since you are always monitored by the security even in your private matters.
According to him, he wished he could be freely window-shopping and interacting with other netizens out there.
Regarding the Building Bridges Initiative, the second in command said that he has never opposed the document and that he does not plan to oppose it since the document should not be contested.
He also rubbished claims that he takes back whatever he gives in the harambees, terming them as propaganda propagated by opponents determined to malign his good name and delay his agenda for the common person.
While referring to the recently found new love between president Uhuru and the former NASA principals, Ruto said that it was unfortunate that the country was being taken back to tribal politics where tribal kingpins determined the direction to be followed by their voters.
In the meantime, Ruto pointed out on Thursday that the differences between him and the ODM leader are only political and that nothing stops him from working with leaders across board as long as they agree with his political ideology of bottom up approach.
He further said that there are those issues he agrees with the Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga that political parties should not be tribal vehicles used by kingpins to achieve their selfish agenda.
“There are many things I agree with him totally. For example, I agree with him when he says political parties should be national and not regional,” he stated.
