Peter Kenneth Accuses DP Ruto, Mudavadi Of Being ‘Ungrateful’ To Raila

Written by on 3 February 2022

Former Gatanga Member of Parliament Peter Kenneth has reprimanded Deputy President William Ruto and Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi for allegedly disrespecting ODM leader r Raila Odinga despite the significant role he has played in developing their respective political careers.

According to Kenneth, both the DP and Mudavadi were at one point in time learning the intricacies of Kenyan politics under the tutelage of the ODM leader and as such they should treat Odinga with the respect that he deserves.

“Wanamkosea heshima na yeye ndiye amewajenga wote. Mudavadi aliamshangwa na mzae (Raila), Ruto alipewa uwaziri na mzae hapa na hawana heshima,” Kenneth said in Kajiado County on Wednesday during Odinga’s tour of the region.

He similarly criticized the pair for purportedly showboating when touring parts of the country citing that the duo should borrow a page out of Odinga’s humility book.  According to Kenneth, Odinga’s humility, has been the cornerstone for the ODM leader’s political success.

“Huyu buda ni mnyenyekevu, hajipigi kifua. Hawa watu wengine kazi yao ni kujipiga kifua,” Kenneth added. 

While drumming up support for Odinga, Kenneth also vehemently refuted claims that the ODM leader was a ‘state project’ highlighting that the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and the former premier united all Kenyans.

“Mlipatia mzee na Uhuru kura na sasa hao wawili wameungana; makasiriko ni ya nini? Mimi nataka tuamue kitu moja leo mkiamua mzee ni project, awe project yenu. Baba ni project ya watu wa kajiado na watu wa kenya,” he added.
