Ruto laughs off referendum threats

05 September 2014, 18:41 William Korir

Nairobi - Threats from within his own party and outside will not deter Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto from the referendum path.

The Council of Governors Chair has been on several occasions threatened for his stance on the referendum, with many saying that he is an anti-Jubilee mole for going against the government and its wishes.

Just recently, there were leaflets dropped in his backyard in Bomet claiming he has used public money to enrich himself.

And with Deputy President William Ruto also publicly against his stance, Ruto still does not feel under pressure to let his feelings go.

" Threats will always be there. They are nothing to stop me, he said.

" We are in a democratic country and we can support whatever we want and deem right in our eyes. The threats are nothing to me.

" They are of course (Leaflets) false and I encourage whoever has any evidence to prove otherwise to come forward and present it", he added.

On alleged threats by deputy president Ruto to him, the Bomet Governor does not want to over elaborate on matters that he deems inconsequential.

" We have spoken but there is nothing new that I have heard" , he said.

Ruto though still insisted that the Okoa Kenya Referendum campaign was not part and parcel of his team and the goals that they are looking to.

" The only things similar between what we are both doing are the words referendum. Nothing else", he insists.
