Deputy President William Ruto has, in a fresh series of attacks against his political nemesis, accused Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga of what he termed as political conmanship.
The DP chewed out the handshake co-partner claiming his intention on the race to State House is centered on driving the country into chaos.
Speaking on Saturday at Thiba North Grounds in Mwea, Kirinyaga County, Ruto cautioned Kenyans against electing the Azimio la Umoja frontman in the forthcoming polls claiming he is unreliable.
“Kenya cannot afford the kitendawili project, it is too expensive for this nation. Kwa sababu tukiangalia nyuma ile hasara tumepata kwa sababu ya hiyo mambo hatuwezi kukubali kuweka taifa letu mahali ambapo tutakuwa tunaendesha tukirudi nyuma,” he said.
“Ile hasara tumepata kwa mambo ya kitendawili haihesabiki…Kwa sababu ya kitendawili serikali yetu ilisambaratika, chama cha Jubilee kikasambaratika, Big 4 ilikwama, mambo ya upinzani ilisambaratika, haiwezekani!”
The DP went forth to apportion blame to Odinga over the fallout within the now defunct coalitions of CORD (2013) and NASA (2018) accusing him of betraying his co-principals who have since dismissed his presidential bid.
“Hana marafiki, alikuwa kule CORD, akatapeli watu wa CORD, akaenda kule NASA, akatapeli Kalonzo, Wetangula na Mudavadi, na ata saa hii ametapeli Uhuru Kenyatta,” said Ruto.
The country’s second-in-command warned President Kenyatta over his pact with the ODM chief telling him it will come to naught.
“We are telling the president to spare us the kitendawili experiment, spare us the kitendawili project, the country of Kenya cannot afford the kitendawili project. Sisi tunamuunga mkono rais lakini project ya kitendawili haiwezekani katika Kenya,” he stated.
“This country will be destroyed when we have the kitendawili project because his track record is littered with destruction, deceit and conmanship.”
He further adde: “Rais Uhuru tunampenda ndio maana tulimchagua. Nilianza kumpigia kura Uhuru Kenyatta 2002, na kila wakati amesimama nimempigia kura kama rafiki yangu. Kama Uhuru ako na rafiki mkubwa Kenya hii ambaye amesimama na yeye anaitwa William Ruto.”
The DP held a joint rally with his newfound partners Musalia Mudavadi (ANC) and Ford-Kenya’s Moses Wetangula as they drummed up support for their alliance.
