Deputy President William Ruto has received one final warning from Azimio presidential contender Raila Odinga not to criticize him ever again or he will see fire.
This comes after Ruto accused Raila of funding phony polls to encourage people to abandon the competition.
Speaking in Narok, Raila refuted Ruto’s assertions that he was thinking about withdrawing from the August 9 presidential election.
He claimed that the DP was always disparaging him.
The 77-year-old, who is making his sixth and last run for the presidency, said he has never declared he will boycott the elections while pleading with the second in charge to show respect for him.
“I am not his agemate, but he (Ruto) is used to talking about me. He enjoys expressing things that have significance, such as “we are frightened of an election,” according to Raila.
The two front-runners for the presidency have recently engaged in verbal sparring on who is more well-liked than the other in the politics surrounding President Uhuru Kenyatta’s succession.
Just days before the election, a recent study by Trends For Insights Africa (TIFA), which was issued on Monday, suggested that Raila was ahead of Ruto; this did not sit well with Ruto.
