Ruto willing to work with CORD in 2017

14 January 2016, 17:09 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto says that he will be willing to work with the opposition come the 2017 elections.

Ruto has already announced that he will ditch the ruling Jubilee Coalition and has started his own party, the Mashinani Party of Kenya in readiness for 2017.

He says that he cannot work with the Jubilee Party since it does not represent the interests of his people and has decided to go his way.

On whether he will be willing to work with the opposition come the next election, he has not ruled it out.

" This is politics. It is for the people. We work for the people and I cannot rule out working with anyone in 2017 including Raila," he said in a phone interview with News24.

He stated that he has no hard feelings with Deputy President William Ruto but blamed him for selling their current party the United Republican Party URP to the highest bidder.

" That party was started by a few individuals including me and Ruto and that he has gone on to dissolve the party without consultation is a problem. I wish him well though," he added.

On whether he will contest the Presidency in 2017, he is still coy on his plans.

" That you will know in due course," he stated.

Ruto has been one of the fiercest critics of the Jubilee Coalition and has fought tirelessly for the addition of funds for Devolution, which he says his new party will fight for.

" Kenyans deserve more funds for devolution. It is a Constitutional right which they voted for," he finishes.
