Raila Odinga, the leader of the opposition Democratic Movement in Kenya (ODM), has attacked Deputy President William Ruto as a junior politician with no serious program to sell to Kenyans, warning him to prepare for a harsh political battle on August 9. Mr. Odinga chastised Dr. Ruto for “continuous chest-pounding” in a brief address to mourners at Kanga Primary School in Migori on Thursday.
Following Mr. Odinga’s March 2018 handshake with President Uhuru Kenyatta, which concluded in the latter backing him for President, he slammed the DP for referring to him as a state project. “He always refers to me as a government project.” “Let him face off with me on August 9 if he is man enough, and he will know that he was once my political student,” Mr. Odinga urged the enraged throng. Mr. Jared Osiany, the father of Industrialisation Chief Administrative Secretary David Osiany, died recently. He was with ODM deputy party leader and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o, Migori Senator Ochillo Ayacko, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed, and others.
“Niliwaambia mkue tayari kwa safari yetu ya kuingia ikulu. Tuko tayari kumenyana na wale wapinzani wetu wa Kenya Kwisha ambao matarajio yao ni kuvuruga uchumi yetu zaidi. (I had told you, people, to prepare for the grand march to State House. We are ready to face off with our opponents who are hell-bent on stifling the country’s economy even further. That team from Kenya Kwisha,” he said. “There are several parties who are ready to work closely to help us secure the victory. We can only be of the essence when we are armed with enough votes. That is what will steer our team to victory,” he added.
