Ruto wants IDPsesettled before elections

27 April 2012, 12:31 Adams Kimutai

Eldoret North MP William Ruto has called on the government to finalize the resettlement of all the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) before the next General elections.

Speaking at Kass FM during the breakfast show Lee nee emet (what is the world saying), Ruto said the resettlement should be done in a quick manner adding that the IDPs were suffering due to rains being experienced in the country.

“The government should expedite the resettlement of all IDPs including those evicted from Mau forest before the next general elections”.

On the charges facing him at the International Criminal Court (ICC), Ruto said that he was confident that the charges will be dropped saying his conscience was clear that he did not commit any crime. The legislator added that he was firmly in the presidential race saying that the next president of this country should be decided by Kenyans and not few self-centered individuals.

“Kenyans should be left to decide who their next president will be…it is absolutely unfair to deny other Kenyans the right to vie for presidency on mere allegations” he said.

The Eldoret North legislator MP also hit out at leaders who were against the recently held KAMATUSA meeting saying that the new constitution guaranteed all Kenyans the freedom to converge anywhere and discuss any issue that has profound effects on them.

“ The people criticizing the meeting are hypocrites as all leaders from different parts of the country did attend it…The meeting discussed problems facing the people of Rift valley and it is absolutely unfair to politicize it”, he said.

Over the recent weeks, there have been heavy criticism of the recently GEMA and KAMATUSA meetings with Prime minister Raila Odinga and former president Daniel Arap Moi calling on Kenyans to shun leaders who were propagating tribal politics in the country.
