Nairobi - Deputy President, William Ruto has exuded confidence that President Uhuru Kenyatta will secure a second term in 2017 through the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP).
Speaking Sunday afternoon in Nakuru County when he presided over the issuance of cheques to IDPs displaced during the 2007/08 Post Election Violence, Ruto said that had they not planned strategically with President Uhuru, he would not have risen to deputy presidency.
He said through their leadership, they have brought together all Kenyans and it is now clear who would ascend to power in 2017.
The deputy president said those criticizing him "need to be forgiven since they do not know what they were doing."

"When President Uhuru Kenyatta ends his second term, who will be next?" Ruto confidently asked in reference to his 2022 presidential bid.
He added: “It is only a fool who thinks that Jubilee will be a one-term government. This is a government that will rule for many years, even more than Moi and KANU's.”
In a statement that seemed to be directed to the Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto who was present, Ruto said politicians who are crisscrossing and rooting for other political parties within the Kalenjin community will not succeed against JAP.
Ruto said that even CORD leader, Raila Odinga has already prepaid his defeat speech ahead of 2017 because he knows JAP will win with a landslide.
"Even the former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga is aware they will not win come the 2017 general elections and they are ready for that so who are we to doubt?" he posed?
