Deputy President William Ruto has trashed the opposition’s demands on the repeat presidential election.

While addressing delegates from the Maa Community at State House, DP Ruto said no one has the authority to interfere with the right of Kenyans to exercise their democratic will.

“Our competitors should stop telling us that there will be no election. Who else has powers and authority to tell Kenyans that they cannot exercise their constitutional right?” asked the Deputy President.

“We must all follow the law for the country to progress,” the Deputy President said.

He told off the opposition leaders, saying they should not take Jubilee for granted thinking that its leaders are weak just because they have accepted to abide by the law.

The DP said Kenyans will not allow individuals to continue using unconstitutional means to interfere with independent organizations.

“The opposition used unconstitutional means to remove Samuel Kivuitu from office, a similar method was used to remove Isaac Hassan from office and now they want to use unconstitutional means to remove the IEBC secretariat. This will not be allowed,” said the Deputy President.

The Deputy President said Jubilee agreed to accept the Supreme Court ruling so as to abide by the rule of law but that should not be misconstrued to mean that the party is weak or its members are stupid.
