Deputy President William Ruto has hit out at his political rivals warning them against employing violence and intimidation to advance their agenda.

Ruto, speaking during a tour of Nairobi County on Tuesday, said his opponents' perceived scare tactics will have no bearing in the August polls.

The DP noted that his ‘hustler nation’ remains firm in its resolve to unite and transform the country, adding that it is time the country moved away from retrogressive politics.

"Nataka niwaulize wale tunashindana na wao tafadhali wacheni fujo, wacheni mawe, wacheni vita sisi ni watu wa amani, uzeni sera zenu. Hawa wakenya they are intelligent and they know what policy is better than the other and they will make a decision," said Ruto at Karen Shopping Centre.

"You don't have to throw stones it will not help you to organize violence. You will not get any vote through violence."

He went ahead to castigate his political rivals for intimidating him saying that he will not be sidelined or underestimated. 

"Our competitors have been pre-occupied with selling to us threats, blackmail and intimidation. I want to ask my competitors you have done it for four years you have not succeeded you are not about to succeed even now," he said.

"We will not buy fear, we will not take your threats we will not take intimidation because we are determined as a people to change the destiny of our nation and we know together we will change this nation for the better where no citizen is left behind," he added.

DP Ruto vowed to build a four-storey business complex where the residents would be able to conduct their businesses as part of his bottom-up economic model implementation on Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
