Former Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga has promised the deputy president William Samoei Ruto a thorough beating at the ballot box in the looming election.
While speaking in Busia county, the former Prime minister dared William Ruto to lead a NO campaign against the constitutional referendum instead of acting like an indecisive man hoping for mana and quail to fall from heaven.
Raila added that the Building Bridges Initiative had already left the station and that nobody will be able to stop the BBI reggae and according to him, the opposing voices should just lead a NO campaign instead of trying to sabotage the document.
The opposition leader further highlighted the benefits that the BBI would bring to the people amongst them the 35% funds increase to the counties and the creation of the ward development funds.
In the meantime, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader had refuted claims that he is using the Building Bridges Initiative to catapult himself to Presidency.
Odinga termed the claims as baseless allegations by his political rivals. He however noted that if he intends to clinch the country’s top seat, then he will seek the support of the electorates.
The Opposition Chief reiterated that the decision on who will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta when his tenure comes to an end in 2022 will be made by Kenyans through the ballot as opposed to any other arrangements.
