Opposition leader Raila Odinga has defended himself from claims by President Uhuru that he is to blame over the dwindling economy in the country since the cancelled August 8th election.
The National Super Alliance presidential candidate, instead, accused President Uhuru of playing victim, when he is the one to blame for the woes the country is facing.
The former Prime Minister further accused President Uhuru of placing the country in the worst path it has ever had, by rigging the August 8th election.
“Nasa wishes to tell President Kenyatta to stop the victim-in-chief mentality and accept that he has caused the trouble and must take responsibility for the situation in the country,” Raila said.
“Kenya is where it is because the President and his Jubilee party tried to steal elections and were caught and stopped, thus putting the country on a path we have never travelled since independence in 1963,” he added.
On Friday, while on a campaign tour to Meru County, President Uhuru accused the Orange Democratic Movement leader of sabotaging the economy of the country by his unending demands and protests that has put the country in tension.
However, Raila attributed the economic downgrade in the country to actions by Jubilee and President Uhuru.
“President and Jubilee Party have deepened the crisis by pursuing a path whose result has produced nothing but economic collapse everywhere it has been taken,” Odinga said.
“By the time Kenyans were done with the Kanu regime that deployed these tactics in the 1980s and 190s, the economy was at zero. The result will not be any different today,” Raila added.
