Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday, May 22, told Kesses residents to vote out their MP Swarup Mishra in the August 9 election. 

Addressing residents in Kesses Constituency, Uasin Gishu County, DP Ruto endorsed UDA candidate Julius Ruto for the seat. 

"Tuko na mjumbe wetu anaitwa Julius Ruto. Wakati tunafungia virago Raila Odinga aende Bondo, tunafungia virago Swarup Mishra aende nyumbani. Mishra aache kiburi na madharau. Wakati tulimchagua hapa alikua mwembamba saa hizi ata kutembea ni shida," DP Ruto stated.

The legislator is among the 14 nominees presented with insignia for conferment of various national honours and awards.
