Raila Baptizes DP Ruto New Nickname And Kenyans Love It

Opposition chief Raila Odinga has now given a new nickname to his political rival, Deputy President William Ruto, and Kenyans cannot keep calm about it.

Speaking on Sunday, January 17 in a service at Sts. Joachim and Anne Catholic Church, Kayole, Nairobi, the former Prime Minister baptised the DP as “Mr Sixth Months Time”.

He went on to warn Kenyans against the ‘propaganda’ peddled by Ruto regarding the BBI.

“I want to warn Kenyans about those who like peddling propaganda against the BBI, they also promised Kenyans a lot of things before.

“There are people like ‘Mr. Six Months Time’, In six months time we shall give all children in schools laptops, in six months time we shall give one million jobs to our youth, in six months we shall build 47 modern stadia, in six months we shall build tarmacked roads,” noted Raila.

Raila stated that Ruto had pretended to shift his focus to the common mwananchi such as vegetable vendors by issuing wheelbarrows and handcarts.

The former Prime Minister questioned why some of the projects promised by the Jubilee government were yet to be completed with less than two years left to the 2022 General Elections.

Speaking after the service where he addressed Kayole residents, Raila put to bed rumours that ODM is set to quit the handshake agreement with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Uhuru will not change and I will also not change, we nominated a team of seven people each to tour the country and ask about the challenges facing Kenyans,” he explained.

Raila continued on his onslaught against Ruto for his hustler narrative as he argued that the poverty crisis could only be solved by favourable policies and not by dishing out wheelbarrows.

In a separate church service at Africa Inland Church (A.I.C) Londiani Town Sanctuary in Kipkelion East, Kericho County, Ruto fired back at Raila explaining why the government has not fulfilled the jobs promise.

“He asked me where the one million jobs we promised the youth have gone to. Let him know that we had a solid plan.

“The only thing that has prevented us from creating those jobs is his entrance to the government which has changed our priorities of the big four to this process of creating one seat for him. He should leave fast so that we can return to our priorities,” Ruto stated.

Raila also dismissed claims that Uhuru is taking him for a ride and will not support him in 2022.

Speaking to residents of Soweto in Embakasi East constituency in Nairobi, Raila dismissed critics saying they will be in for a rude shock.

He termed talks of being abandoned by Uhuru as propaganda by Tangatanga wing who are not happy with the cordial relationship he enjoys with the President.

“Wengine wanasema ooh Uhuru anadanganya Raila..takataka hiyo..{some people are saying Uhuru is cheating Raila ..that is utter rubbish},” Raila said.
