He said Kenyans who participated in the October 26 repeat presidential election could not be disenfranchised by one person’s quest for power – in reference to Opposition chief Raila Odinga.
“Odinga chose of his own will not to participate in the election. Kenyans had nothing to do with that decision. He should stop threatening peace in the country,” Ruto said.
“I want to tell Raila that violence is not an option in Kenya. Only a fool does not learn from mistakes,” he added in an exclusive interview with CNN.
Speaking in an interview with various media outlets at his Karen office, the DP said since Raila had failed to marshal support in other parts of the country, he had decided to destabilise the country.
“Since there was only one region where violence was experienced, NASA (is) attempting to export the same mayhem to other regions.”
