Ruto belongs to jail, asserts Raila in Thika
Deputy President is sabotaging President Uhuru Kenya to spoil his legacy, ODM leader Raila Odinga has claied.
Raila said he will ensure Ruto is jailed for stealing from Kenyans once he takes over the government in this year's polls.
He accused Ruto of derailing Uhuru’s administrative agenda during his first term in office.
In a perceived response to Ruto’s accusation that the handshake wrecked the Big Four Agenda, the ODM leader asserted that he would add on to President Kenyatta’s development legacy should he emerge victorious in the race for presidency in the August polls.
In his larger effort to consolidate votes from the vote rich Mt. Kenya region ahead of the August Presidential elections, Raila held rallies in Thika, Kiambu County.
Raila is taking his fifth stab at the presidency.
On Satuday, he held consultative forum with a section of Mt Kenya leaders and opinion shapers at the Mt Kenya University who assured him of their unwavering support in his presidential bid.
The former Prime Minister then proceeded to the Thika Green Stadium where he accused the Deputy President of allegedly derailing the President.
While underscoring critical services delivered by President Kenyatta in his second term in office, Raila asserted he will would build up on President Kenyatta’s development legacy should he emerge victorious at the August elections.
The ODM leader while defending his social welfare plan of giving out Ksh6,000 to the jobless to cushion them from economic hardship, dismissed Ruto’s camp for criticising his agenda saying he is aware of how his government will raise the money.
