Friday March 4, 2022 – The ODM party has taken a swipe at Deputy President William Ruto for claiming that there are attempts to rig the 2022 presidential elections.
Speaking yesterday, Mbadi wondered why the DP started crying wolf immediately after the Head of State threw his weight behind ODM leader, Raila Odinga.
According to the Suba South MP, Ruto is dropping the clearest hint that the Head of State might do exactly what they have been doing to their long-term political nemesis Raila Odinga, especially in the 2013 and 2017 General Elections.
“Is William Ruto telling us that he has been participating in rigging the previous elections?”
“Is he admitting that?”
“And if not, why does he think that this time the election will be stolen?”
“Is it because President Uhuru Kenyatta has shown Kenyans that he is supporting Raila Odinga?” Mbadi posed.
The Minority Leader at the National Assembly was reacting to William Ruto’s claims that Kenya’s democracy is under threat from unnamed State agencies.
Ruto, who was speaking in Maryland during his tour of the United States on Wednesday, appealed to the global community to intervene and stop attempts to rig the August 9th presidential elections.
He claimed that there is growing concern amongst Kenyans about the deliberate intrusion of State agencies to manipulate decisions of the Kenyan people ahead of the August polls.
