Speaking to Citizen TV on Thursday, August 27, the DP said his only interest was doing everything possible to ensure Jubilee government realises its dreams and aspirations as envisioned.

Although he noted the president had changed the way he was running the government compared to how he did during Jubilee’s first term in office, Ruto said he will continue to support him as his principal assistant.

“We have agreed with the presiden t that the style of leadership he wants is what we will follow. In the first term I had more responsibilities, pushing for construction of roads, electricity, technical training colleges and all the projects. In second term, the president decided to work differently and that is what we will follow…the way the president wants is the way were will work,” he said

“Challenges are there but as leaders, we are there to solve challenges so will continue working together to ensure we realise the legacy we envisioned,” said the DP.
