28 May 2012, 13:24
United Republic Party presidential hopeful Eldoret North legislator William Ruto has strongly criticized his former boss Prime Minister and his members of bulldozing nominees from ODM who will represent them in the East Africa Legislative Assembly citing the move as futile.
Speaking at a URP political rally in Nakuru at Afraha Stadium, Ruto said the 5 positions are not for ODM alone and there must be consultation between Musalia Mudavadi and him when sharing the slots.
“ODM move to present the five names in parliament is a cowardice act and if the consultation will not be done, we will reject the names as we have the right to get our share because the constitution stipulates so.” Ruto said.
On elections, Ruto decried the recent sentiments by some reports and leaders that the country will experience chaos during the elections and condemned such utterances calling the prophets of doom.
URP has continued with its message of condemning homosexuality citing the country must adopted good family values promising the Kenyans the government will drive the economy by 10% to avert unemployment, poverty and hunger.
Dujis MP Adane Duale told the PM to stop divisive politics and the nominees he has presented to the parliament will not see the light if he will not consult Mudavadi and Ruto in the EALA slots.
He also affirmed that G7 Alliance is still alive and strong and the next government will be formed by the team with like minds.
URP chairman who was the former speaker of the national assembly Francis Ole Kaparo urged Kenyans to vote for visionary and leaders with issues concerning improvement of their living standards.
Chirau Ali Mwakwere who said he was the running mate of Ruto pointed fingers on opinion polls which he said are being manipulated to misinform Kenyans.
The rally was attended by several MPs from the country allied to URP and also those who are aspiring to vie for different positions in the next elections.
