Raila Issues a Warning, Alleges What Ruto Will Begin Doing Soon After Getting to State House

ODM leader Raila Odinga has once again warned Kenyans against making Deputy President William Ruto their next President.

He is battling Ruto in the race to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta, who is retiring, with each showing interest in leading the country after Uhuru.

But Raila has advised Kenyans to elect him, telling them that things can only go further south if they make the mistake of going for Ruto.

He claims that the DP is corrupt, and has been stealing from Kenyan, and will immediately begin laying the foundation to steal more if given power in August.

Raila has warned that Ruto will only try to loot more resources from the state coffers once made President and and needs to be shunned.

"The moment we shall seize power on August 9 we shall transform our country to another level. Our competitors cannot be able to effect any meaningful change because most of them are entangled in one scandal after another. Their work will be to loot more from public coffers," the leader said in Kiambu on Wednesday, as is quoted by The Standard.

He told Ruto to stop even bothering convincing Kenyans that he can salvage the country, holding that there is no way a man who is part of the problem can turn into part of the solution.

Raila said that Kenya needs someone who can genuinely fight graft, like himself, adding that he is therefore the man for the job come August.

"You (Ruto) are part of the problem and therefore you cannot be part of the solution. Kenyan needs leaders who will genuinely fight corruption and restore the country to the status of an investment hub in Africa," the politician is further quoted.

Ruto is seeking the seat for the first time and Raila for the fifth time.
