Deputy President William Ruto has asked fellow politicians vying for the Presidency come August 9 to excise peaceful campaigns.

Speaking on Saturday, January 22 at Kathonzweni AIC Chucrh in Kathonzweni town, the DP stated that God will decide who will take over the country's leadership after President Uhuru Kenyatta.

"And even as we canvass across the country, we must know that ultimately God will decide the next leadership of this country through the prayers, the votes and the support of the people of Kenya," Ruto said.

The DP further asked politicians to accept the will of voters adding that the country needs to be united even after the polls.

"So, tusigombane, tusipigane, tusipiganishe watu, tusigombanishe wananchi, tujue kwamba wananchi wanaelewa, ni watu wazima, ni watu wenye akili, kila mmoja wetu apate nafasi ya kuuza sera zake. Wananchi wataamua sera gani ni bora kuliko gani, kiongozi yupi ako na mpango bora kuliko mwengine na sote baada ya uchaguzi tujue kwamba tutaendelea kukaa katika nchi moja," Ruto said.

The DP who was meeting church leaders in the area also asked for their co-operation in uniting Kenyans to create a strong nation.

"Nawaomba kama viongozi wa kanisa na wananchi wa nchi ya Kenya, tushirikiane, na tujenge daraja za urafiki na undugu ili tuweze kutengeneza a strong nation. Nchi yenye iko na msingi mzuri. na sote tukishirikiana katika njio hiyo tutaenda mbele tukiwa pamoja," he said.

"We want a united nation. We want a united Kenya and that is the philosophy behind us working together," the DP told church leaders.
