ODM leader Raila Odinga has fired back at Deputy President William Ruto who accused him of paying goons to disrupt his rally.
On Sunday, January 16, DP Ruto’s rally in Jacaranda, Embakasi East was brought to an abrupt end after rowdy youth stormed the rally and started pelting stones at the DP’s supporters.
Speaking while addressing people of Embakasi East, the DP accused the area MP Babu Owino and his boss Raila of organising goons to disrupt his rally.
“Bwana kitendawili the master of violence, you have planned violence for us in Kondele, here in Embakasi East and we know your signature
“This violence you have organized in this republic and want to use it as a means to get to public office, you will not succeed,” an agitated DP said.
Raila has since responded to the claims through his spokesperson Dennis Onyango where he accused the DP of sponsoring the disruption of his own rally so as to ignite war in Rift Valley.
“It is not beyond Ruto to sponsor the disruption of his own rally so that he can find an excuse to remove madoadoa in the Rift Valley and, if need be, start a war in the Rift Valley
“Violence has been part and parcel of Ruto’s brand of politics right from the time he introduced himself to the country through YK92 through 1997 to 2008,” Odinga said in the statement.
