Deputy President William Ruto on Friday assured that he is not opposed to the ongoing war against graft as claimed by his critics. 

Ruto dismissed his critics citing that they are seeking relevance in the country by spreading propaganda. 

"It is sad that some individuals suffering in the political cold are claiming that I am opposed to the graft war in this country. I wish to confirm that I'm among those against corruption," said the DP. 

"Graft should be fought to an end because we all want public funds to be used wisely and fund development projects," he said.

He called upon NASA leader Raila Odinga to stop dragging the country behind with his supposed retrogressive style of politics. 

Ruto took a swipe at Raila noting that his call to unite the country is a sideshow.

"This country won't go back to politics based on ethnicity. Claims by Raila that he is focused in uniting Kenyans are false which should not be taken seriously because his plan is to bring chaos in the Jubilee government the same way he made KANU and NASA collapse," DP Ruto opined. 

He was speaking during the Tabaka Mission Hospital's Laboratory ISO Certification ceremony in South Mugirango constituency, Kisii County.
