KENYA. Nairobi. The nation’s Deputy President Dr. William Ruto, while addressing his supporters in Kisii town, said that Kenya will not experience post-election violence again. He also drew attention to the fact that some politicians were scaring citizens by saying violence will erupt in relation to the upcoming 2022 presidential election.

Ruto stated that Kenyans are not fools who can be used by self-centered politicians for the creation of chaos. Ruto made these statements a few days after the Orange Democratic Movement leader, Raila Odinga, condemned Ruto’s allies, who are inciting people as they begin preparing for the election.

President Uhuru Kenyatta decided to set aside differences with his now deputy president Ruto, which caused violence back in 2007. They agreed to form the Jubilee party, which is the current ruling party.

In 2012, Kenyatta asked Ruto to support him for a ten-year term and in return, he will support Ruto in the 2022 election. Things were going well until a handshake was made between President Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga. During the handshake, Odinga promised to work with the president in uniting the nation. However, Ruto´s allies were against the handshake, claiming it was a scheme to block him from ascending to power in the next election.
