BY JOAN WANJIKU/DPPS,EMBU,29TH JAN,2022-Deputy President William Ruto has likened ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga to a political conman saying he has never kept his promises to those who have stood with him.
DP Ruto said Raila has deceived Wiper Party Leader Kalonzo Musyoka, ANC Party Leader Musalia Mudavadi as well as FORD Kenya Party leader Moses Wetangula.
He said they will continue supporting the President in service delivery but will not be pushed to support Raila.
“We are telling the President, please spare us the Kitendawili experiment, spare us the Kitendawili project. The Country can’t afford the Kitendawili experiment, This Country will be destroyed because his track record is littered with deceit and destruction,” DP Ruto said
Speaking in Kirinyaga, Ruto accused Raila of disrupting Government operations, destabilizing the Jubilee party and in the process curtailing service delivery.
He said UDA has joined hands with ANC and FORD Kenya for the good of the Country saying likeminded parties will join them in due course.
“We have come together so that we can unite the Country, we have not come together so that we can share positions, we have come together so that we can build a better Kenya, with the interest of Kenyans at heart,” Ruto said.
Mudavadi said their cooperation with UDA and FORD Kenya will prioritize the economy saying, “Our objective is to improve the economy of this Country. Kenyans have no money, we must improve their livelihood,” He said.
Mudavadi said they will traverse the Country to mobilize support for their alliance saying they will win the elections in the first round.
“We want on the 9th of August to have a united Government that will not go different directions. We must as Kenyans come out and vote in large numbers for progressive leaders,” He said
Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru said the region will vote for Ruto to the man saying any person saying otherwise is in denial.
Waiguru’s bid for a second term received a huge boost after Ruto endorsed her candidature urging residents to support women leaders to enhance gender equality.
She exuded confidence that the 2022 contest will be free and fair saying the unity between Ruto, Mudavadi and Wetangula will shake the Country.
