Violence has Been Part and Parcel of Ruto's Brand of Politics – ODM

Orange Party camp has issued an official statement on the chaos that erupted during Deputy President William Ruto’s Sunday rally at Jacaranda, Nairobi.

In a scathing attack, ODM Party has cautioned Ruto against stage-managing chaos for political reasons

The Raila Odinga’s secretariat went on to claim that Ruto and his stooges always thrive in violent since days of YK92.

“Violence has been part and parcel of Ruto’s brand of politics right from the time he introduced himself to Kenyans through the YK92. Other than use of money to buy support, violence is Ruto’s main tool for political ascendance,” partly read the statement.

The Raila team of defense argued that the violence that ensued during Sunday UDA rally was self-sponsored and that groups within UDA camp had to fight while scrambling for Ruto’s never-ending handouts.

The DP on his part had linked the disruptions to ODM Party boss Raila Odinga whom he said has a history of misusing youth from Kisumu and now in Nairobi.

“Shame on you bwana kitendawili. You did this in Kisumu and now you have brought this to Nairobi. My administration will not allow youth to be misused again.

“This is the year for us to end the tribalism and political intolerance. We shall have respect for all Kenyans,” Ruto charged.

During the Jacaranda event, police had to swing into action to contain the worrying groups – one which was chanting MP Babu Owino’s name while the other praising DP William Ruto.
