Ruto: We aim to unite communities

10 April 2013, 09:54 Dennis Omido

Deputy President William Ruto has said he and President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to work together to unite communities that had been divided.
“When President Uhuru Kenyatta and I decided three years ago that we were going to work together it was not about winning an election, it was about bringing communities from across our regions that had been quarreling and fighting for years to work together and live together as Kenyans,” said Ruto at the inauguration ceremony of President Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi.

He said as they embarked on that journey, God enabled them not to only succeed but he gave them 'dividends and a bonus'.
“He gave us dividends because in the process we won an election, and gave us a bonus because we won that election in round one,” Ruto said.
He said that never again will the Kenyan people shed innocent blood or destroy property on account of political competition.
“We are unashamed of the mission we have embarked on and we can confidently say that political leadership and competition in our country from today henceforth will be about issues, ideas, manifestos, programmes, policies and political parties, that will be the frame on which political leadership will be canvassed in our country,” he said.
He said that they have the confidence of the Kenyan people and will undertake the principal critical primary responsibility of the Jubilee government of growing the economy by double digits.

“With the resources we have, there is no reason why our economy will not be growing by double digits in five years,” he said.
He said this will be achieved by using Kenya’s strong agricultural base and commercializing agriculture and subsiding agricultural inputs for farmers in Kenya.
