DP Ruto behaviour handing Raila free votes, Jubilee leader says
25 August 2016, 19:33
Nairobi - The behaviour of DP William Ruto is giving the CORD Coalition free votes, a Jubilee leader says.
Ruto has been accused on a number of occasions of insulting opposition leaders.
He has deemed the accusations false and called on those against his utterances to stay in their lane.
But according to Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto, the continued insults are playing to the advantage of the opposition.
"The insults and words are unnecessary. They create a situation where the one being abused is seen as a victim and gains sympathy," he said.
He said that he will support Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta's bid for re-election come 2017 despite his feelings on their behaviour.
"I am fully behind their re-election. That does not mean that I like everything they do," he added.
Ruto is chairman of the Mashinani Party of Kenya.
