RUTO SAYS GIDEON CANNOT BE PRESIDENT

Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday told presidential hopefuls that the Presidency was not vacant, and cautioned them against premature campaigns.
He told those eying the presidency in 2017 to hold their horses since he and President Uhuru Kenyatta are equal to the task and will proceed to retain both positions since they have the voters' goodwill.
The DP in apparent reference to Gideon Moi and Bomet governor Isaac Rutto's presidential ambitions said they needed to give him and Uhuru more time to deliver.
Ruto told Kalenjin leaders who were elected in the 2013 general election to concentrate their energies on developing their region and stop politicking at the expense of much-needed services to citizens.
He said it is too early for a section of Kalenjin elected leaders to start declaring their presidential candidature as if there were a leadership vacuum in the ruling Jubilee Alliance Party.
“President Uhuru and I are here to stay and, come the 2017 general election, will defend our positions and win with a margin that one would never thought of,” Ruto said in Kapkatet Grounds, Kericho county.
After Uhuru's final term of office in 2022, Ruto told the gathering, he will succeed him as the Fifth President of Kenya, through a popular vote across the country.
“Jubilee sio serikali ya nusu mkate, mimi na Rais Uhuru tuko mamlakani kwa mapenzi ya Mwenyeenzi Mungu na walio tupigia kura (the Jubilee government is no half-loaf coalition government, President Uhuru and I are in power by the grace of God and were democratically elected by the majority of Kenyans),” Ruto declared.
