Deputy President, William Ruto, on Tuesday urged voters to reject leaders who were thriving on propaganda to discredit the government’s development projects.

Speaking at Njukini, Taveta, Wundanyi and Mwatate towns in Taita Taveta County during voter registration drive, Ruto challenged the residents to assess the performance of leaders before electing them for various positions come the next election.

The Deputy President, who also issued 800 title deeds to squatters in Njukini area, said that Jubilee was committed to resolving the land problems at the Coast.

The DP was accompanied by Lands Cabinet Secretary, Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi, Kwale Governor, Salim Mvurya, Nairobi Senator, Mike Sonko, Taita Taveta Senator, Dan Mwazo, and National Land Commission (NLC) Chairman, Muhammad Swazuri, among other leaders from the area.

At the same time, Wiper Party Leader, Kalonzo Musyoka, has dismissed reports that he is planning to leave the National Super Alliance (NASA) if he is not named the coalition’s presidential flag bearer.

Speaking in Kisii while addressing the media before heading to Nyamira County for a voter registration mobilization tour, Kalonzo accused Jubilee Party agents of alleging that he is planning to quit NASA and contest for Presidency on a Wiper party ticket.

While affirming that he is firmly in NASA, Kalonzo asked resident to come out and vote in large numbers saying it was the only way to remove Jubilee from power.

Kalonzo further intimated that he is hoping to be named the main opposition presidential candidate adding that he will remain in NASA even if he is not picked as the Presidential candidate.
