Ruto tells off CORD over IEBC dialogue team

Deputy President William Ruto scoffed at the 5-member-dialogue team appointed by the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) to hold talks about the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) standoff saying that the opposition needs to rethink its composition.

Ruto, who was speaking during the National Prayer Breakfast at Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, said that leaders must follow Godly teachings in their undertakings.

“We are a very interesting lot as Kenyans. Yesterday, I had an engagement with some friends from Parliament. And they were telling me, you see now that the other side (CORD) has appointed Muthama (Machakos Senator) and Mombasa Woman Rep. Mishi Mboko (for the IEBC talks), I think we should appoint Moses Kuria and Baba Yao (Ferdinand Waititu). If it wasn’t a serious thing it would be hilarious actually, because that would be how not to get it done completely,” said Ruto.

“We are a God-fearing nation. We believe in what God can do for us. We will continue to pray and do good for our country.”

The Deputy President said he believed there will be peaceful and fair elections in 2017.

“One thing for sure that I know is that God is on our side. If you cannot be patient to be led, you are not made of the material to lead,” he said.

There were calls for Kenyans to keep peace and remain united.
