The former Governor,who has silent ever since losing hos seat to Mrs Joyce Laboso, said he was ready to take any opportunity which would make him productive in the country.

“I am a politician and need a political party, unless we are in talks to merge parties. There is a no such a talk currently. But what do you want me to do? Apply for a job to be a PS or do what?

“I would like to contribute to the development of this country. We can discuss any role anyone would think I could participate in. I wouldn’t mind participating on positive developments for this country. But that doesn’t necessarily change my initial thinking,” he said in response to a question about him joining the government as a public servant.

The former co-NASA principal also offered a rather rare advice to Deputy President William Ruto and his political foes over the recent verbal tirades.

Mr Rutto advised his namesake and a section of ODM legislators not to get personal with their differences over 2022 succession politics.

“What they are saying should have been done last year. I don’t think Kenyans want to know what they are saying or doing. It is time to get to work so that we can full get into politics after even three years.”He said on CitizenTV.

“The Opposition should be vigilant to get the Jubilee working. That’s what they should be doing. I don’t think they should run around talking about each other or about that guy or that man in the Government. Talking about individuals doesn’t help Kenyans, let them talk about issues,” Mr Rutto added.

On Monday, the DP was on the receiving end of Raila Odinga’s lieutenants, who accused him of being an impediment to the “Building Bridges” initiative instigated by President Kenyatta and Raila.

The ODM legislators went as far as labeling DP Ruto as “Kenya’s number one enemy.”
