Raila to Ruto: Let Uhuru retire in peace, face me like a man

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Presidential candidate Raila Odinga has challenged Deputy President William Ruto to stop what he termed “shadow boxing” and face him head-on, days to next week’s general elections.

Addressing his supporters at the Jomo Kenyatta International Stadium, Mambo Leo, in Kisumu on Thursday, the ODM leader said Ruto should stop attacking President Uhuru Kenyatta, reminding him the President is soon leaving office.

“Uhuru is the outgoing president of the Republic of Kenya, leave him alone. Let him go and retire in peace. If you have a problem, face Raila Odinga and Martha Karua squarely,” said Raila.

He accused Ruto of being a ‘cry baby’ who is out to blame the Head of State and Cabinet Secretaries for no apparent reason, as Kenyans negotiate the final corner to the August 09, 2022 polls.

Ruto has blamed the office of the president for allegedly using chiefs and assistant chiefs to try and rig elections in favour of Raila, but the Azimio candidate says they do not need local administration officials to win.

“We do not need chiefs, assistant chiefs or the administration to win this election. We will win this election because of the votes of the people of Kenya.”

His running mate Martha Karua appealed to Kisumu residents to turn up in large numbers on August 9, so as to ‘confirm Raila’s impending win.’

“I know Kisumu has decided, Nyanza has decided. We should not leave even a single vote out. All votes should go to Baba’s basket.”

Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka who has been promised the post of Prime Minister in the Azimio government said he has been to several parts o the Country and that all pointers direct to a Raila win.

It was Raila’s final rally in Kisumu – his political backyard before the polls as the official campaign period ends on Saturday, August 06, 2022.
