- Deputy President William Ruto took his campaigns to the lake region, a region known to be Raila's stronghold. When DP Ruto visited Kisumu chaos erupted that made the police to use teargas to disperse those who were throwing stones at Ruto. After the incident, Deputy President William Ruto directed all the blames to the ODM party leader Raila Odinga. Raila did not take long to respond to Ruto as he also defended himself in an interview. Raila said:
"Mimi sitaki kuingia kwa mambo ya porojo, labda niongee kwa mambo ya ukweli, Ruto ni Mkenya na anaruhusiwa kutembea popote kuuza sera zake
Chama chetu, ile Kisumu branch ilitoa taarifa ikasema aruhusiwe Ruto auze sera zake kama mtu yeyote, kusiwe na vurugu yoyote.
Mimi sio mtoto mdogo niende kuorganize watu warushie Ruto mawe, kwa sababu gani? Ruto ni kitu kidogo sana kwangu.
Yeye anaweza kwenda Kisumu kila mahali vile anavyo tanga tanga kila mahali akipiga .. anabweka hapa na pale, ni haki yake, ni binadamu, apige kifua yake, akohoe, ateme mate, hio ni sawa kabisa, hio ndio mambo ya siasa nchi yetu."
