Speaking in Kisii and Kakamega county Dr. Ruto said that the handshake should be used for development agendas and not fighting each other.

Ruto told his critics to focus on development politics, that will transform the lives of common citizens.
“They must shun stale politics that is hinged on tribalism, hatred and division and, instead, focus on issues that will transform the lives of Kenyans,” added Dr Ruto.
Former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale who had accompanied the DP said that Siaya senator James Orengo is using the fight against corruption to popularize their leader.
“We know you (Orengo) are not fighting corruption; you are looking for an easy way to popularise your leader.” said Khalwale.
