Raila Breaks Silence Few Minutes After Ruto's UDA Camp Wrote To ICC Complaining Of Harassment

Retired prime minister Raila Odinga has finally broken his silence few minutes after deputy president William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance party UDA formally wrote to the International Criminal Court over alleged state violence meted on its members. According to the group, the state has constantly infringed in their rights to free assembly by constantly organizing disruption to their meetings.

In response, ODM leader Raila Odinga has said that DP Ruto has already sensed defeat ahead of the August 9 polls and that is the reason he is looking for scapegoats to accuse of rigging.

"We know he has already seen himself losing. He is now coming up with theatrics to divert people's attention,"

This has come shortly when the DP's rally in Langata was disrupted by rowdy youths which forced police to disperse them with teargas. On Sunday, Ruto's meeting in jacaranda was also cut short when police used teargas carnitas to disperse rowdy youths who allegedly had been paid to disrupt the meeting.
