Deputy President William Ruto has met leaders from Taita Taveta county.
Ruto held talks with leaders of various spheres from the County led by MPs Naomi Shaban (Taveta), Jones Mlolwa (Voi), Lydia Haika (Taita Taveta), former Governor John Mruttu and Joyce Lay (Former Taita Taveta Women Rep.)
During the meeting, he called on leaders to uphold peace and unite Kenyans.
Ruto reiterated that there was need for leaders to combine efforts in supporting the country’s economic recovery amid the COVID-19 crisis.
“We must break all political barriers, team up and put together ideas and resources to help uplift the living standards of the millions of Kenyans,” Ruto said.
This was the second meeting after the DP hosted a delegation from Uasin Gishu and Trans-Nzoia Counties, at Sugoi earlier this week.
The series of meetings are a result of the aftermath of the formation of a registered political party which he will use to seek the Presidency in 2022.
