DP William Ruto has confronted ODM leader Raila Odinga in spiteful tweets for labeling him a hinderance to reforms. According to the ODM leader, those opposing the BBI report are the same forces that have often opposed change in Kenya. Ruto has indicated that he will be in conflict with changes to the Constitution if they will be endorsed by the BBI report. According to Raila, the group has no conscience, no ideals and no principles that they are ready and willing to live and even die for.
On Saturday 26th evening however, the DP, without naming names, also hit back saying that the opposition leader should stop intimidations and threats. “The lords of tribalism and poverty who are masters/beneficiaries of political violence are very mad at the unbowed hustler movement,” he said. “Tribe has been hijacked by tribal lords/chiefs to benefit themselves and their families to the detriment of Hustlers and their children. The hustlers, as a minimum, want a new conversation.” He added that his movement is not about power but rather empowerment.
He added that power is about the lords, some leaders and the few, but empowerment is about the people. “These hustlers are not thieves, they are not stupid, they are not lazy. They deserve opportunity, support, encouragement and inspiration, which they lack.” He concluded by saying that they wanted a discourse on real jobs for millions of Kenyans.Follow us in social media:
