Political Commentators Professor Herman Manyora has implored upon President William Ruto to be cautious with the threats made by the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
Raila has said that he might be rallying Kenyans and his supporters to protest Ruto's move to push for the removal of the four commissioners of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) which the Azimio Camp have defended.
According to Manyora, Raila wells out with masses, and his threats would not be ignored, urging those who interact with Ruto to pass him the message that he should take Raila serious.
"Those who watch my show tell the president that Manyora says this; If Raila realizes that Ruto has invaded his regions by wooing the leaders, he will go to the people, which he has said he will be doing. I want the president to listen to me, I am not like those people around him who pamper him, I will tell him the truth."
"If Raila feels threatened, he will put his case before the people, and due to the economic hardships and the government policies on increasing fees, removing subsidies and even hunger, Raila will get a very good ear from the people. Ruto should not celebrate invading Raila's strongholds. If this happens, Raila might lead protests against Ruto's government," argued Manyora.
