That it’s not the way how a capable leader does can stoop too low in the name of votes.
” Me am not interested in doing cheap things to people, I do visible things for the general public, service delivery matters not lying people by donating for them cheap things like salts and soap like I see my colleagues do because they want votes” said Rukari.
“By the way if I don’t pick your calls at times better know that am avoiding you from corrupting me, I pick relevant calls like for chairmen LC1s who lead all people not that one who just call me with your phones with intention to corrupt me. Why do u want to talk to me in a secret, I no longer want to pick those irrelevant calls because I attend to people I know that they are useful to me” said Rukari.
In his speech Rukari also urged independent candidates to rather quit and rally behind NRM flag bearers especially those who were defeated in primaries and returned back as independents.
