Ruto does the unthinkable minutes after his Nyayo Stadium rally

Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday made good use of his gym routine and ran to catch a flight at the Wilson Airport for a final rally in Kiambu.

The Kenya Kwanza coalition was to close its campaign at Kiambu’s Kirigiti stadium.

The Election Act requires aspirants to hold their last campaign rallies 48 hours to polling day. The deadline is 6pm.

Immediately after the Nyayo Stadium rally, Ruto went straight to the airport in a bid to rush to Kiambu before the deadline.

In a video shared on social media platforms, the DP is spotted running along the runway as he rushes towards a waiting chopper.

It was a busy day for the DP who earlier in the day led the Kenya Kwanza principles in a press conference at Karen, before heading to Narok county.

The Kenya Kwanza caravan then headed back to Nairobi to Nyayo stadium for the major rally.

Speaking during the event, Ruto turned down an offer of a handshake after Tuesday’s election by his closest rival and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Presidential flagbearer Raila Odinga.

Speaking at the Nyayo National Stadium on Saturday, Ruto stated that he will only sit down with Odinga to agree on their respective roles but not anything that will compromise or undermine the Constitution.

“I want to commit that I love this country so much that I will not participate in something that undermines the constitution of Kenya. I will not participate in anything that brings confusion between separation of power and accountability of the government,” he said.

“I am therefore telling my competitor on the other side that yes I am ready to sit down with him after the elections but only to agree on his roles as the opposition leader.”

The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) flagbearer further committed to accept the outcome of the Tuesday’s poll regardless of the way it goes.

Odinga had earlier said he was ready to shake hands with his main rival DP Ruto whether he wins or not during next week’s general election.

Speaking during his final campaign rally at the Kasarani Stadium, Odinga pointed out that this will enhance the spirit of reconciliation following the hotly contested election.

He indicated that his political ambitions go beyond himself but depends on the goodwill of the nation, in the spirit of reconciliation.

The battle for votes by the two frontrunners has been dominated by mudslinging, tit-for-tat claims of rigging which has led to the elections being taunted ‘cut-throat’ competition.
