Headache For Uhuru & Mt Kenya Tycoons As Raila Hints At Supporting Ruto Again

While speaking at Emoo FM in an interview with Joshua Arap Sang, the former prime minister revealed his reletionship with the deputy president William Ruto. Mr Odinga added that he had no problem working with the deputy president ahead of the 2022 polls. Raila,stated that Ruto has been a great friend to him and he would like to work with the DP Ruto again to save the Kenyan economy which is currently on its deathbed.

Mr Odinga said he has no problem working with the deputy president if Ruto can agree to swallow his pride and come on table for political negotiations.

Raila added that they only differ with Ruto politically by at personal level they are great friends. Raila added that he would love working with DP Ruto to ensure he restores back security in most parts of rift valley.

The former prime minister further added that he is not intrested in the top seat for personal benefit but to save Kenyans and if Ruto has the same mission then he is ready to swallow his pride and support the DP Ruto.

He added that the genesis of their fallout was the Mau eviction which he supported. Raila added that he supported the initiative to protect Kenyan water catchment areas,but not to deny Kalenjin community an opportunity as others claimed.

Odinga added that he won't leave Kalenjins behind following how they voted for him in 2007 unanimously.

The move by Raila to hint at his support at the DP Ruto might be a major headache for Uhuru and Mt Kenyan tycoons who knows that if the duo works together then it will take the region decades to clinch the presidential seat.

Do you think the former prime minister Raila Odinga and William Samoei Ruto can work together? Kindly share your views.
