Cornered Ruto fires at Raila as Azimio gains ground in the Mountain
By Justus karanja
Faced with a strong onslaught from a resurgent ODM leader Raila Odinga, a cornered Deputy President William Ruto (pictured with a bishop in Kiambu) has resulted into insults, declaring Raila is not a progressive leader.
While in Kiambu over the weekend, Ruto said Raila never keeps his promises, claiming his politics of deceit have forced his partners to flee and seek other alternatives as the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta intensifies.
Ruto wondered how Kenyans can trust a leader who promised to support Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka in 2022 but has since renegaded on the promise.
“If someone is a political conman that laws have to be made to stop him, will Kenyans survive his lies?” he posed.
Speaking in Limuru in Kiambu County, Ruto asked MPs to prioritise bills that will improve the lives of ordinary Kenyans.
He later engaged the residents of Rironi and Kwambira in Limuru, saying resuscitating the economy will be his number one agenda if elected President.
Ruto said he has partnered with ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi and FORD Kenya Party Leader Moses Wetang’ula to form a purpose driven alliance that will unite Kenyans.
He was accompanied by Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichungwá as well as Tharaka Nithi Senator Kithure Kindiki.
But Ruto did not tell the public why he fell out with Uhuru.
