Deputy president William Ruto has promised to deliver the two thirds gender rule within one year of his administration. Speaking to Journalist NTV Joe Ageyo at his official residence in Karen, the deputy president said that his administration will create the framework with 100 days and deliver on the same within 12 months.
On why he has not resigned from the same government he has been opposing from within, Ruto said there were people who want him to resign saying that he hasn’t done his duties in accordance with the constitution. “Which responsibility, which duty, which assignment was assigned to me that I’ve not discharged?” asked the Deputy President.
He added that what the framers of the constitution did was the right thing, that when Kenyans decide to elect a DP together with the president he/she cannot be fired by anybody so that it’s not the whims of individuals that carry the day but the constitution.On why he picked Rigathi Gachagua as running mate, Ruto said Gachagua is a peoples person who speaks about the ordinary people and like himself, believes in bottom-up. “I like most about Gachagua is his passion for people issues; the challenge we have in Kenya is so much about leaders who are passionate about the ordinary people and Rigathi Gachagua is one of those Kenyans” said Ruto
