Ruto: Azimio tried to steal my votes

President William Ruto now says the Azimio coalition tried to bungle the August 2022 polls.

The Head of State also mocked what he referred to as the deep state, arguing he was a stronger candidate than Azimio’s Raila Odinga.

He spoke during a tour of Komarock in Nairobi and boasted of how he managed to guard his votes against possible theft as he had promised his supporters during the campaigns.

“My opponents were boasting of how they had the deep state. I told them that is just air and you (the people) will decide,” said Ruto.

President Ruto also said Azimio tried to steal his votes but he was very keen. He did not share proof.

“You remember I told you nobody will steal my votes. They tried but did not manage.”

The claims come a month after the Supreme Court unanimously upheld President Ruto’s victory in the August 2022 polls.

Ruto narrowly beat Azimio’s Odinga to win the hotly contested elections held in a peaceful arrival.

Coincidentally, Odinga has separately claimed that his votes were stolen but is yet to share proof.

President Ruto has further promised to work with land owners and developers to solve the challenges in land ownership.

“If there are people claiming land upon which another citizen has built a home, we will work with both the land owners and those who have developed the property so that we can create a win-win settlement,” stated Dr. Ruto.

He also promised to give 4,000 Nairobi residents title deeds in the next month and ensure at least 200,000 title deeds are issued by the end of 2023.
