Kenyans Cautioned Against Raila, Given 3 Solid Reasons Why They Should Avoid Him

Deputy President William Ruto has once again fired at his leading opponent in next year's presidential elections Raila Odinga, seeking to fortify his stand that the former Premier shouldn't be given the vote.

Ruto has been trying to caution Kenyans against voting for the ODM leader in the poll slated for August next year, giving a series of reasons why he thinks Kenyans shouldn't trust him with leadership.

On Sunday, he said that everything Raila has been touching has been failing and collapsing, suggesting that the same will be the case in the country should Kenyans allow him to form the next government.

He cited the collapse of the ruling Jubilee Party, the poor performance of the Jubilee government and the death of the BBI law changes push, warning Kenyans against trusting such a person with leadership.

"His entry into the Jubilee government immediately killed the Jubilee Party. The Big-4 Agenda and the reggae have also collapsed, are we really going to follow such a person?" he asked Kiambu residents.

Ruto said that Kenyans shouldn't make the mistake of following such a person, who according to him lacks a plan and cannot make anything succeed.

His remarks come at a time when Raila seems to be gaining ground in the region and coming out of the boggeyman mask area leaders had made him wear by panting him as an enemy of the region previously.

A recent survey by Mizani Africa indicated that Raila is slowly catching up with the DP with regards to the support of the Mt Kenya region, thanks to the help of some area leaders now working with Raila.

These leaders include Kiambu governor James Nyoro and a host of other governors and MPs, who have bee reportedly operating on the orders of President Uhuru Kenyatta, who wants Raila as his successor.
