Handshake being used to frustrate the DP ,says lobby group

A lobby group in support of Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential ambition dubbed ‘Dr. William Ruto Team’ have castigated the second handshake for being used by a section of political leaders to frustrate the deputy president.

Speaking at a Nakuru hotel over the weekend, the members drawn from across the country led by Edra Mbatha, one of the national leaders under the lobby said that they will activate the presence of the DP Ruto across the whole country to ensure that his ambitions remain focused and received by the people well.

“We will activate the presence of the DP Ruto across the whole country to ensure that his ambitions remain focused and received by the people well” he said.

According to Mbatha, President Uhuru Kenyatta needs to stand by his pledge to support his deputy during the next election to ensure that the Jubilee programs are carried over by somebody who understands them well.

Other members castigated the intimidation labeled against the deputy president to back him down from his ambitions saying that he needs to be respected and accorded opportunity to provide the leadership.
