Deputy President William Ruto says that he arrived early at the polling place to avoid bothering his neighbors.
In a statement made after casting his ballot at Kosachei Primary School in the Turbo Constituency at 6 a.m., Dr. Ruto said that due to his prominence and political influence, he believed voting during the day would create extra trouble to those waiting in line.
Dr. Ruto and his wife Rachel arrived at the polling places only two minutes before they opened.
“Everybody here wants a peaceful process. Our prayer before voting was about having a peaceful election. I am also delighted that this historic election will usher a new era for the country. I want to urge for a peaceful process,” he said
