Duale: Isaac Ruto has to wait for 50 years to be president

Leader of Majority in the National Assembly Aden Duale has blasted Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto for accepting the lowest position within the opposition’s National Super Alliance (Nasa) coalition.

Speaking on Friday at a campaign in Bomet, Duale suggested that the Kalenjin community will have to wait for 50 years to ascend to power if they choose to vote for Nasa instead of the Jubilee Party.

“I am advising you to be patient in Jubilee for five years and this community will ascend to power. If you decide to join Nasa, then you have to wait for Raila (Odinga) to finish his term, then Kalonzo (Musyoka) rules for his 10 years. (Moses) Wetangula also wants 10 years, remember we also have (Musalia) Mudavadi waiting. So, technically Isaac Ruto has been lied to because he has to wait for 50 years,” said Duale.

At the same function, President Uhuru Kenyatta also claimed the opposition was engaging in side-shows because they are scared of competing in the August 8 general elections.

“When you hear them making noise and complaining about everything, just know that they are not ready for us, and I’m assuring you that the elections will go on in August because we are ready for them,” president Kenyatta said.

The President also warned leaders against inciting Kenyans, saying anyone who attempts to do so will be dealt according to the law.
