Deputy President William Ruto has said that he is a man on a mission whose end won’t allow him to surrender.
Speaking at a burial in Taita Taveta County where he attended the burial of Muhoo ward MCA Ronald Hanel Sagurani, the DP appeared to respond to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s resignation calls.
In his address, the DP boldly said he won’t quit his mission adding that he is on the course to deliver it.
“For those who have a problem I want to ask them for forgiveness. And I want to tell them that I am a man on a mission. I have no space to retreat, and I don’t have the luxury to surrender,” he said.
The DP’s speech appeared as a response to President Uhuru Kenyatta who on Monday dared him to resign from office.
President Uhuru told his deputy to stop attacking the government and at the same time taking credit for development projects launched and implemented by his government.
He asked him to leave office if he is dissatisfied with his leadership adding that is what democracy calls for.
The DP however is on record saying he won’t allow to be intimidated and forced out of the government at the same time.
He said he has gone through lots of humiliation but will keep serving until the end of his term.
