You have given us your attention, it is time to put a signature to that contribution for voting Kenya Kwanza.

These were the words of DP William Ruto who drummed up support for his candidature ahead of the Tuesday elections.

Speaking at his Karen residency on Saturday, Ruto said life has never been bad in our country as it is today.

"Kenyans have received a terrible beating as we cannot afford to put food on the table," he said.

Ruto said they have reached a point where small businesses have closed shop because cost of living has become terrible.

"For the farmer you are walking on productive land that is not cultivated. It is no longer and no wonder we have an Ugali sosa crisis," he said.

"We are all victims of economic system gone rogue on us. But do not worry. It is time to have the courage to say no to anything that threatens our civility."

Ruto said Kenyans must believe in a better tomorrow adding that 'Lets not surrender to skeptics who insist that there is nothing wrong. Remember Kenya kwanza is your guarantee'.

"We have worked with you on how to remodel our country. We have come to you and listened to you and heard you clearly. We know your hopes and fears. we assure you that we will not let you down," he said

"You have given us your attention and support it is time to put a signature to that contribution for voting Kenya Kwanza."

Ruto said from day one in office, they will tackle the cost of living so that everyone can afford to go about their lives.

"We have agreed to reduce the cost of doing business. We have agreed to tackle run away corruption including State capture," he said.

He said they will guarantee Universal Health Care for every Kenyan where everyone will have a cover.

Ruto said the interventions Kenya Kwanza has put together will improve the cost of living.

We are clear and deliberate on the implementation sharing. We know what should be done in the short, medium and long term. We also know what should not be done," he said.
