'Sisi sio Wajinga' Tharaka Residents Responds to DP after What He Said about Raila

The presidential campaigns have hit a fever pitch as the frontrunners traverse the nation in search of support to bolster their chances in the forthcoming election.

A bruising political battle is unfolding in the country as 4 candidates fight for the presidential seat. Deputy president William Ruto and ODM leader Raila Odinga are considered the top contestants to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta.

DP today rallied Tharaka Nithi to drum support for his bid. He was in the company of Justin Muturi, Alfred Mutua, Kithure Kindiki, Ndindi Nyoro among other politicians.

Speaking in Tharaka, Ruto told residents to blame Raila for the skyrocketing cost of living alleging that Azimio interfered with Jubilee's big 4 agendas. This prompted the crowd to reveal that they won't be fooled again. Ruto urged them to vote him on the upcoming election.

He promised to create conducive environment for farmers to produce more at a good market price.

" Tulikuwa na mpango wa big 4 watu wa Azimio ndio waliharibu huo mpango wa kuzalisha chakula. Wananchi wanalala njaa. Watu wa Kuzimia ndio wanafaa kulaumiwa kwa haya matatizo yote. Wakenya sio wajinga, tarehe tisha tutapeleka kitendawili nyumbani.Tutapunguza gharama ya mbegu na mbolea kisha tupange soko bei ikuwe sawa sawa ili tuondowe aibu ya njaa." Ruto said.

This loosely translate to, " We had a big 4 plan but Azimio came and destroyed it making our strategy in producing more food to fail. People have no food to eat. Azimio should be blamed for all challenges in the country. We are not fools and by August 9 Raila should go home. We will then reduce price of seeds and fertilizers and ensure there is market for the produce in order to eliminate hunger."
