Raila Odinga: I'm not a state project, Odinga responds to DP William Ruto's project accusations

ODM leader Raila Odinga, has dismissed any claims that he is a State project. He said that he had made his own way in the political arena.

Raila was speaking during the funeral of Dr Caroline Karugu's mother Jacinta Karugu, at Chaka Grounds in Nyeri County when he stated that he was not President Uhuru Kenyatta’s project.

“I am not anyone's project I am Raila Odinga. They said I couldn't climb the mountain and I am doing it and I will keep doing it till I make it to the highest peak of Lenana,” he said.

The Opposition chief also waded into Nyeri county affairs where he told off Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga for his strained relationship with his deputy.

"Don't disrespect our women, they must be respected. They pay taxes and work just like the men and should be paid their dues," he said.

Raila called out Kahiga for his recent remarks dismissing the ODM leader about his penchant to give historical accounts of Kenya. He also told the governor that they must talk about history.

He reminded Kahiga that without history the people will not know where they are going and where they have come from. Kahiga had extended an olive branch to his deputy calling for truce over their current standoff.
