Rutto said Jubilee has good agenda for the country and needs Kenya’s support to accomplish them, regardless of our political divide.

Rutto opened up on his lengthy vendetta with the Deputy President William Ruto by revealing that he agreed to bury his differences with the DP for the sake of peace and unity.

Rutto said he, the President and the DP go way back and there is no point to have animosity among them.

In September this year, Mr Rutto joined UhuRuto for a rally in Kapkatet, a month after the bungled August 8 Presidential Election.

Rutto was among leaders who welcomed President Uhuru after they landed in the area.
