Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday accused opposition leader Raila Odinga of unfairly sabotaging his duties despite the fact that he was elected to serve along President Uhuru Kenyatta.
Speaking at Gekano Parish, Dr Ruto said he knows perfectly his duties, adding that 'he does not require a lecture from Mr Odinga on how to serve people'.
The DP insisted that as a Deputy President, he was elected to serve interests of the people. He said his trips to villages should not worry his opponents.
Dr Ruto further asked local leaders to support the initiatives of Jubilee goverment, adding that their aim is to transform lives of people at grassroots.
"Sometimes people can be amusing. They do not want me to come to Kisii, Nyamira or elsewhere yet that's my work. They should read the constitution and understand," he said.
"I was elected to serve people. Moving around with rhetoric and propaganda cannot help you win the hearts of people," he said in reference to Odinga.
It was Ruto's second trip to the region in a span of 24 hours. The DP started from Tente SDA Church in Nyamira town. On Friday, he was at Ekerenyo.
The DP was accompanied by MPs Shadrack Mose, Sylvanus Osoro, Vincent Kemosi, Joash Nyamoko and Kisii Deputy Governor Joash Maangi.
Interestingly, Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama snubbed Dr Ruto at Tente SDA Church, which is barely 300 meters from his residence.
Ruto has been at loggerheads with Mr Odinga, who enjoys substantive following from Kisii and Nyamira Counties. He has earmarked the region as a tossup.
