The former prime minister Raila Odinga, during his meet the people to at Bungoma county on Saturday 2nd October, assured Kenyans that the petroleum products prices will go down probably next week.
Raila further maintained that he will not quit politics until he ensures he liberates the Kenya's economy and ensure Kenyans lead affordable life.
However, according to the former ally of Wiper Democratic Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Johnson Muthama, the former prime minister Raila Odinga has no authority to revive the Kenya's economy as he claims.
Muthama has accused Raila Odinga of taking the economy to its knees through the handshake he had with president Uhuru Kenyatta back in March 2018.
He further accused Raila of keeping quiet even as the prices of petroleum products and other basic commodities go up.
He added that the only way the economy of Kenya can be revived is through the bottom-up economic approach being promoted by the deputy president William Ruto.
"Under his watch the prices of fuel and basic commodities skyrocketed to utter dismay of Kenyans. William Ruto's Bottom-Up economic model is the answer to our economic woes," he tweeted.
Johnson Muthama is one of the Ruto's top confidants from Ukambani region. He has declared his interest in running for Machakos governor seat in 2022 under the United Democratic Alliance of the deputy president William Ruto.
