DP William Ruto accuses opposition of lacking a development agenda

Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday met rebels from the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) in a bid to stamp Jubilee’s presence in the Coastal region of Kenya.

Mr Ruto is said to have urged the rebels to ditch the opposition and join the ruling coalition if their electorate are to enjoy the many offerings from the government.

Speaking in Lungalunga, Kwale County during a funds-drive, the DP accused the opposition of lacking a development agenda despite putting up a spirited campaign.

Ruto was accompanied by National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and CORD MPs Gideon Mungaro (Kilifi North), Khatib Mwashetani (Lungalunga) and Kwale County Women Representative Zainab Chidzuga.

The three committed to work with the government in order to bring more development to their constituents.
