Crowd Chant 'Tumekataa' During Ruto's Rally in Kilifi after What Mutua Said

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 elections.

Kenya Kwanza today rallied Kilifi county to drum support for their presidential candidate William Ruto. Their rally comes a day after they visited Mombasa and Kwale in a bid to counter attack Azimio influence.

Speaking in Kilifi, Machakos governor Alfred Mutua said that president Uhuru Kenyatta was planning to rule the country for another term using Raila Odinga's ticket. The crowd shouted back 'tumekataa' stating that they will not allow such thing to happen.

Mutua added that since Uhuru is the chairman of Azimio and in the unlikely event Raila wins the price of commodities will be worse than now. He further stated that the challenges affecting the country needs a young leader who can work hard.

" Tunaenda kupiga kura na tumekuja kuwaambia mwenye hustahili kupigia. Nimekua huko Azimio na tumejua ni ya ukora. Chairman wao ni Uhuru na yeye anataka kuendelea kuongoza. Huyu mzee anataka kuonja urais hata kama ni kwa sekunde lakini Mungu amemkataa. Tumeonja serikali ya Azimio hakuna tofauti na ile ya handshake. Shida ambazo ziko hapa hazitaki mzee, kwa hivo tuachane na hadithi." Mutua said.

This loosely translate to, " We have come near the election and we are here to tell you on politicians you shouldn't elect. I was in Azimio and I know its not good. Uhuru is the chairman of Azimio and plans to continue ruling for another term. Raila is hungry for presidential seat even if its for a few seconds but God has denied him a chance. We have tested Azimio adminstration and its the same with that of handshake. The challenges the country is facing cannot be solved by an old person so let's avoid story telling."
