Deputy President William Ruto continued to stamp his authority as a deputy president of the Republic of Kenya after he appeared in camera confidently inspecting projects in Meru last Saturday October 17th.
In a move that was seen by many as a direct defiance to his own boss President Uhuru Kenyatta who gave the mandate to Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i, Ruto during his Meru visit, was seen moving around and looking at State development projects.
He first started by making an impromptu stopover along an ongoing construction site along a Meru road where he is said to have caught the contractor off guard.
Accompanied by Meru Senator Mithika Linturi, the DP was captured inquiring about the road project in Igembe South Constituency and held a lengthy talk with the contractors before proceeding on to the next stage.
“How are you, do you know the Deputy President of Kenya?” Linturi asked the man who stammered over as Ruto went on to greet him.
Senator Linturi could pull out the foreigners cap before allowing him to explain more about the project. DP appeared pleased by the progress before flagging his huge convoy on to the next project.
“We are modernizing our road network so that we can accelerate the movement of goods and services, attract new investments, support employment and local businesses, hence hasten the growth of our economy,” Ruto stated
And while at Tiira Secondary School, he also stopped to address surging supporters whom he promised their government was working day and night to protect the Miraa industry. Watch this video to the end-
