It seems like the continued political rivalry between ODM party Leader Rt Hon Raila Odinga and the Deputy President Dr William Ruto is not going away any soon. This is after Raila continued his attacks on the second in command at his home turf in Eldoret.
The former Prime Minister who was speaking to delegates in his Azimio la Umoja initiative, pointed out that it's more hypocritical of DP Ruto to claim that he has got solutions for the unemployed youths yet he's part of the cause of the problems.
Hon Raila expressed his doubts on how one, referring to DP Ruto, could afford to fund his lavish lifestyle of helicopters and a series of fundraising events accruing to over sh. 100 million yet his monthly salary is less than 3 millions. Raila pointed out that even the rich telecommunication company could not foot such an expenditure.
The local farmers equally asked the AU Special Envoy for Infrastructure to intervene and address the issues affecting farmers among them maize prices. In response, Raila exposed that the cartels behind high fertilizer prices are known and are the ones behind the high maize prices as compared to the neighbouring countries.
Raila consequently assured the attendees that when they take over the government next year, the social protection program which will seek to cushion the unemployed youths and families by allocating ksh. 6,000 monthly stipend will be realized.
In his company was among others, the ODM party deputy leader governor Oparanya, Elgeyo-Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos and a couple of members of parliament.
