Deputy President William Ruto on Thursday hosted Kirinyanga governor Ann Waiguru at his Karen home, a day after Ipsos survey ranked them both as most corrupt.
Ruto termed the survey as under-the-table political tactics by his opponents.
“We are ready for a contest. But a real contest where the turning of the lives of the ordinary people matter. That is the kind of competition I would like to engage in,” Ruto said.
He added; “We have beaten them in serving Kenyans, now they have opted to fake opinion polls. As a matter of fact, they will never match our development records. focus on issue-based politics rather than going into an arena of fake opinion polls and fake stories.”
He spoke during the breakfast meeting with Waiguru and 33 members of the county assembly from Kirinyaga.
According to the poll 33 per cent of Kenyans said they perceive the DP as the most corrupt.
Waiguru ranked second at 31 per cent, ahead of former President Daniel Moi (17%) and President Kenyatta (11%).
Pollsters interviewed 2,016 adults across the country between July 25 and August 2 on a variety of issues.
Waiguru has since threatened to sue IPSOS over the alleged claims.
