Deputy President William Ruto has asked elected leaders to shun petty politics and embrace the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga that seeks to bring to an end political rivalry between Jubilee and opposition political parties.
Mr Ruto said elected leaders should set aside their political differences and focus on the implementation of development projects that will transform the country.
His sentiments were echoed by Migori Governor Okoth Obado who welcomed Mr Ruto in Migori County during his Monday development tour of the county where he promised residents more development projects from national government.
Mr Obado said: “We are very blessed. The Deputy President has come here to initiate development projects. That is the development we want. As Migori residents we love visitors and love peace as well.”
