Deputy President William Ruto says he does not regret utterances attributed to him following the annulment of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory after the 2017 general election.
While responding to a leaked audio recording that has widely circulated since the weekend, Ruto defended his position maintaining that he was right to stand his ground as the principal assistant to the head of state. He says he had no doubt, the President had trounced his rivals and won his second term in office.
 “I am telling the Azimio people, the things you are circulating in the media that William Ruto pushed President Uhuru Kenyatta to certain lengths, did you want President Kenyatta to relinquish the seat that we had fought for,” he posed
Ruto, who is in Meru county drumming up support for his Presidential bid, says he was justified to take the position that he took at the time.
“Even if I forced him to become Presidency, I committed no mistake. Stop the hypocrisy. You have no business on that.” He told a political rally
The DP insists that the ruling Jubilee Party had won fairly and nothing would have made him allow the President cede his position especially given that he had led massive campaigns for re-election.
“There was no way I would have accepted Raila takes away that seat. No way. Even if it meant me pushing him (President Kenyatta) to whatever length, I would have done so,” he charged
“I used to wake up so early in the morning, and conduct three political rallies before the President arrived. He is my friend and that is why I assisted him,” he added
