ODM leader Raila Odinga has responded to Deputy President William Ruto’s ‘conman-ship’ remarks saying the DP is only afraid of the fight against corruption. He echoed the minority chief whip Junet Mohamed who said that the DP was using him as a scapegoat.
Ruto alleged that he was a conman whose intention was to oust him from the Jubilee party as he did when he was in ODM.
Speaking in Mlolongo, the former Prime Minister said that he supported that tax on fuel because it substituted the option of reducing salaries for civil servants.
He said that he only agreed to support the increase contrary to the popular opinion because it is what was good for the people.
Odinga maintained that he urged the government to cut down on expenditure and that he and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka only agreed to support the increased taxation for one year.
On matters politics Raila said that the journey to Canaan was still on, and that they only met ‘crocodiles’ on the way and opted to build Bridges with President Uhuru Kenyatta before crossing to Canaan together.
He also disclosed that on the day of the handshake, he called his co principals in NASA but Wiper leader Kalonzo’ mobile phone was switched off, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi was at the airport heading to Mombasa.
He claimed that they never spoke about the Big four agenda but focused on finding solutions for a peaceful Kenya.
