“Just because I’m in Azimio and I’m a Baba Girl, I also admire Ruto, I admire the President, so get with it. I don’t give a crap what you think. Just because I’m in Baba’s party, doesn’t mean I have to hate Ruto. It is not in my being. I love the President, I love the way he does things. I love his dedication to serving this country,” she confessed.
