National Super Alliance presidential running mate Kalonzo Musyoka has warned President Uhuru Kenyatta that he stands a better chance in the August General Election without his deputy William Ruto.
Addressing supporters of the National Super Alliance (NASA) on Sunday in a rally in Jacaranda grounds in Nairobi's Embakasi area, the NASA deputy flag bearer said that Ruto will be the reason President Uhuru Kenyatta will lose to Raila Odinga.
He accused Deputy President William Ruto of being a perennial liar adding that he lacks respect for other leaders, something that has cast a bad image of the Jubilee administration.
"Ikiwa kuna mtu atafanya Uhuru ashindwe August 8 ni William Ruto. Jana akiwa Makueni alisema kuwa washatushinda katika uchaguzi mkuu ujao (If there is someone to make Uhuru lose on August 8 it is William Ruto. Yesterday while in Makueni he claimed that they have already beaten us in the General Election)," Kalonzo said.
“I want to respond to William Ruto claims that my home turf is a Jubilee region; Ukambani region was and still is an opposition stronghold. In fact the main reason President Uhuru is going home is because of Ruto,” said Kalonzo amid cheers from the charged crowd.
Kalonzo will be the running mate for National Super Alliance flag bearer Raila Odinga, after the duo was cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to contest for the country’s top seat.
