08 August 2016, 08:15 Samuel Arap Yego

Nairobi - Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday visited the backyard of Opposition Chief Raila Odinga with a unique message to the people of Nyanza.

The Deputy President who toured Nyatike Constituency in Migori County asked the area residents to continue supporting Raila Odinga but cast their vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017.

Ruto who launched the Last Mile Electricity Project at Osiri village explained that Jubilee party will form the next government and advised people of Nyanza not to be left out in the cold.

“We all know you support Raila but it wouldn’t be such a bad idea if you vote for President Kenyatta and me in 2017, because most Kenyans will do so during that time,” said the Deputy President.

“People of Migori and the entire Nyanza region, you need to do your mathematics well and see who will carry the day in the elections,” said Ruto, cracking the ribs of those in attendance.

Local leaders including area MP Omondo Anyanga and Governor Okoth Obando were conspicuously absent as they gave the visit a wide berth.

Ruto, who is known for his generosity did not disappoint the residents as he did not leave them empty handed.

The Deputy President visited the homes of two widows; Yunia Achola and Julia Adhiambo (Mama Selah), and left them with KES 600,000 to buy land and help build houses.

He donated KES 1 million and pledged to send another KES 1 million to help the local Osiri Mixed Secondary School to build a laboratory.
