Deputy President William Ruto has said that he is ready to form a coalition of selfless leaders who are ready to put the interests of the people first if elected to be President next year.

He said he is keen on working with like-minded leaders to implement the bottom up economic model that will empower ordinary Kenyans as opposed to power sharing political arrangements.

Ruto claimed the opposition has derailed Jubilee administration’s Big Four agenda in their selfish pursuit for leadership positions.

 “This time round, we will not take a path that will put the interests of leaders ahead of the interests of the people. It is not about what leaders will get but what the people will get,” he said.

Misguided priorities  Speaking during a church  service at St Joseph Catholic  Church Rurii and later at  Rurii MCA thanks giving  ceremony at Rurii Stadium  in Ol Kalou, Nyandarua  county, the DP said it was  unfortunate that the Jubilee  Party, that was meant to unite Kenyans and trans[1]form the country, has been  hijacked by individuals with  misguided priorities.

Ruto said the country ought to have focused on economic recovery instead of focusing on constitutional amendments.

He urged leaders to shun tribal politics and divisive politics and join progressive Kenyans in economic transformation talks.

The Deputy President said the country’s politics was no longer about tribes, leaders needs and position of power but the economy and the needs of the people.

“This time round we are talking about the economy of ordinary Kenyans, the bottom up economic model that will uplift ordinary Kenyans.”  Kilifi North MP Owen  Baya faulted those who  claim devolution is better than the bottom-ups  economic model saying  the model will compliment  devolution.

Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria urged Uhuru not to allow Opposition leaders to use him to influence the 2022 presidential election.

 “Knowing who will be president after you is the duty of Kenyans,”said Kuria.

Dagoretti South MP John Kiarie faulted the op[1]position for conspiring to change the general election  date because they are not  ready to face Ruto.

He said those who are not ready for the general election should allow those who  are ready to proceed and  elect leaders of their choice.
