National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga has taken a jab at the five fringe presidential candidates whose names have been added on the ballot for the October 26th repeat election.
The former Prime Minister particularly appeared to have directed his rage at Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate Dr Ekuru Aukot accusing him of being a betrayer, and called on his spouse to divorce him.
Speaking at a rally at Mama Ngina Drive in Mombasa on Sunday, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader questioned Aukot's quick change of stance, despite an earlier pledge not to participate in the fresh election devoid of reforms in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
“ Walisema wameinua mikono, sasa wanasema wanataka kusimama kama rais wa Kenya. Wanapewa siku kumi wafanye campaign. Campaign gani? Jamaa ata ana aibu, anakubali jina lake liweke kwa karatasi,” said Odinga.
He told the cheering crowd that the man should be abandoned by his wife.
“ Wako na ma bibi ama hawana? Kama wako na mabibi ningewabia hawo mabibi wawapatie talaka mara moja sababu yeye ni msaliti, ” he added.
Odinga further said that he is disinterested with a coalition government and accused Deputy President William Ruto of being the mastermind of 2007/08 shared government between him and retired President Mwai Kibaki.
“Ruto was among the people who convinced me to accept the coalition government back in 2008. He even told me to accept and make him Minister for Agriculture… we are not interested in a nusu mkate government,” said Odinga.
