Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday took time off his busy schedule to address residents of Kericho County. The DP was from attending the annual Congress of the Forum of Chairs of Constitutional Commissions and Independent Offices at the Kericho Green Stadium.
Ruto was conspicuously missing from President Uhuru’s events that saw the head of State launch the Phase 2A of the Standard Gauge Railway that stretches from Nairobi to Suswa.
The DP instead decided to transact other government duties in Kericho, his political stronghold.
He called on the people of Kericho and Kenyans at large to strive to live in Unity.
“We are stronger together; with teamwork, we can push forward our country’s transformation agenda. We must therefore strive to forge unity among ourselves for synergy and mutual understanding,” Said Ruto.

At the Kericho Green Stadium, Ruto called on the various commissions to solidify their collaborative effort, be active participants in the national conversation, and give guidance and insight on the major legal, governance and constitutional issues of the day.
The DP also acknowledge the contribution of constitutional commissions in fostering democratic growth and guiding the implementation of Chapter 11 of the Constitution saying it is for this reason that there has been a successful roll out of the devolved system of Government.
