Ruto wont accept Rift Valley competition

23 March 2015, 15:28 William Korir

Nairobi - DP William Ruto has finally come out to silence his critics in the Rift Valley, stating openly that he is the only bonafide leader in the region ready to be president.

The DP stated over the weekend that he was ready to go to war with his critics in the region and especially those who have openly spoken out against his leadership and position.

The DP slated Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto for his declaration that he would run for presidency in 2017, stating that he should concentrate on working for the people of Bomet first.

He also had a go at reports that Gideon Moi, son to retired president Daniel Arap Moi to the presidency in 2022, with a tone that sounded sarcastic and bullish.

Analysts believe that the move by Ruto is a reaction to months of poking and aberration from his rivals.

" He had to react one day because he has been under pressure in the Rift Valley from Rutto and other elements," Kiplangat Kunoni, an Eldoret based political analyst told News24.

" (Isaac) Rutto has been on the attack for a long time and it was actually surprising he has taken this long," he added.

Nairobi based political scientist Michael Njenga also feels that the stunt by Ruto was to show who is boss and re-affirm control over the matter.

" The best way to deal with such issues is to take control and attack," he says.

" What he did was just taking charge of the situation. He is taking control and telling them I am boss and no one will take over my Rift Valley.

" For the sake of the DP, it was a good move just to silence the critics," he added.
