Nairobi - Bomet governor Isaac Ruto has rubbished off claims that he wants to divide the Kalenjin community through his Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) for his own selfish gains.
Speaking at Kass FM morning show, Ruto said that he formed his CCM party so as to improve livelihoods of the electorates at the grass root level and not to divide the community.
”Parties are not meant to unite tribes living in Kenya but they are meant to improve the livelihood of the electorate", he said.

”CCM is here to stay and I will use it to defend my seat as the Deputy president William Ruto has chosen the candidate to fly Jubilee's flag",he said.
