Dr Ruto during a campaign in Murang'a County with his colleague Rigathi Gachagua accused Mr Odinga of insulting the startups.
"Raila has shown that she does not understand how hard work and business are related and has insisted that one should start at the top from the first day of the investment," said Dr Ruto.
Dr. Ruto put it this way: "If he could show such contempt for graduates who want to earn a living faithfully as they explore other possibilities, what kind of management commits itself to a prime directive?"
Speaking at a campaign rally in Narok on Sunday, Mr Odinga recounted how he had recently eaten fish in a Nairobi joint run by a graduate student.
"I will make sure that when I form the next government I will make sure that the graduates get the right jobs. I will make sure that I get them through good communication," Mr Odinga said.
However, speaking separately in his constituency, Gatanga MP Nduati Ngugi said Mr Odinga's remarks were taken as usual and used to discredit him.
"His remarks were based on the lack of jobs that resulted in our students getting jobs reserved for low-income people. Mr Odinga expressed genuine concern that the graduates would be working in non-voluntary and under-staffing roles. It was their decision," said Mr Ngugi.
Mr Ngugi said Kenya Kwanza contains a vague notion that by voting greed, it could use any situation to mislead Kenyans.
