Ruto maintained that he is ready to work with Obado the same way “President Uhuru Kenyatta and Odinga have decided to bury the hatchet and work together and that is why I am visiting all parts of the country including Migori to spread development,”

He pledged to “work with governor Obado to bring development to the people of Migori”

“Is there a problem if I worked with governor Okoth Obado? I will continue to walk with him in delivering development to our people. I will not mind what will be said of our closeness,” he said.

Obado hinted at a political union with the DP calling Raila a crocodile who was out to eat him alive.

“I would like you to condemn this so called crocodile,  which some people wanted me to be swallowed with. Let us not allow this crocodile to eat us up,” he said.

“I am ready to work with the DP now and in future,” said governor Obado.

He was hosted by Obado, Kuria East MP Marwa Kitayama, Suna West MP Peter Masara and Kuria West MP Mathias Robi.
