DP Ruto was quoted telling a cheering crowd in Ruiru that “8 million Kenyans did not need anyone to choose a witch doctor for them as a leader in 2022”
Kenya’s largest opposition party ODM officials have taken issue with scathing attacks directed at their party leader former Prime Minister Raila Odinga from DP William Ruto and his team of handlers. Mr Odinga’s elder brother Oburu Odinga recently reacted angrily at the derogatory attacks. Mr Oburu said that as far as he was concerned, his brother is a Civil Engineer, a former Prime Minister of Kenya and a past presidential contender. “When did he become a witch doctor?” he asked DP Ruto.
Mr Oburu was supported by the ODM party chairman John Mbadi, “kiboko ya Ruto” Suna East MP Junet Mohamed and Nyatike MP Tom Odege. The ODM leaders challenged DP Ruto to prove his “mganga” (witch-doctor) claims against Raila or “shut up”! They are challenged Mr Ruto to explain how the former prime became a “mghanga” after grooming him in ODM through the 2005 referendum to 2007 elections. “Ruto should tell the country what he knows about Raila or shut up” they retorted.
Kenya’s second in command remains an idle man holding an “empty shell” with all responsibilities offloaded to the “new kids on the block”
DP Ruto’s attacks on Mr Odinga sparked a fresh storm against DP Ruto whom they claim is the “high priest” of mega corruption in government. Junet derided Ruto as “arap mashamba” who even “grabbed a school playground in Langata” and built a five-star hotel on it.
DP Ruto was quoted telling a cheering crowd in Ruiru that “8 million Kenyans did not need anyone to choose a witch doctor for them as a leader in 2022”! As campaigns enter the home stretch, President Uhuru Kenyatta is making no secret of his desire to leave political power to Mr Odinga, who has contested for the presidency in the past severally. The ODM leader made peace with President Kenyatta in 2018 through a symbolic handshake outside Harambee house, with their political bromance blossoming at the expense of DP Ruto!
Kenya’s second in command remains an idle man holding an “empty shell” with all responsibilities offloaded to the “new kids on the block”! Ruto has never forgiven Raila for this! He roundly accuses Mr Odinga of splitting the Jubilee party the way he did to the then ruling party KANU in 2001. President Kenyatta remains with only 7 months in office and has started making “grand schemes” for his successor in 2022. He is said to be planning to roll out a red carpet for Mr Odinga in Nyeri town soon, where a major campaign rally is set to be held.
