"I thank the President for telling me early to start organizing myself on how to climb the mountain. He told me if I want to stay in good terms with the mountain region people I should focus on the developments, I plan on the roads, plan on water, education and also visit churches in all corners, "Ruto said.

He said that those presidential aspirants scaling the mountain now must organise themselves as the Mt. Kenya region people want action and not speeches.

"The president knows as he advised me to start early and organise myself to understand the issues of the region and start working on them and I think we have done a good job in matters development as we have done in every other part of the country," he said.

Ruto said in their movement they are determined to unite the country.

We believe that a good idea must give way to a sitter idea to also a best idea," he said
