Raila's Brother Speaks Out, Explains How They Will Crush Ruto Next Year

Deputy President William Ruto has once again been warned of a looming defeat should he stick to his presidential ambition for the fast approaching polls slated for next year.

Among the persons the DP might have to go though to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta is ODM leader Raila Odinga, whose allies have now kicked off their campings for him (Raila).

Led by Raila's elder brother Oburu Oginga, they on Saturday predicted the worst for the DP, telling him to prepare for a bruising battle that will culminate in his defeat.

The EALA lawmaker said that they are energetic, unlike the DP who began a marathon like a sprint race and has now run out of the energy he needs to finish the race.

"The DP should realise this is a marathon, not a sprint. He has been going around the country competing against himself," he said in Siaya, according to The Nation.

He is among members of Raila's inner circle who have been making anti-Ruto and pro-Raila announcements, which have at times been questionable and controversial.

In August last year, for intance, he claimed that Raila has secured the backing of the 'system', which will see to it that he is the next president after years of rigging him out.

Rarieda MP Otiende Amollo, who had accompanied Oburu to a burial in West Uyoma, said that the DP should do what he wants to do as president right now.

The lawmaker stated that the DP cannot claim to have only realized what Kenyans need just now yet he has been the nation's Second In Command for close to nine years.

"He cannot tell Kenyans that he has now discovered what they need," he said.

Alego Usonga MP Sam Atandi demanded that Ruto resigns for fighting the government he helped form and a president whose deputy he is.
