President Uhuru Kenyatta has attacked Nasa presidential candidate Raila Odinga, saying he is not fit to lead Kenyans as a president.
According to him, Raila and his Nasa brigade plans to change the Constitution, yet he was among tose who told Kenyans that it should not be revised — even by the insertion of a comma, before it was adopted in 2010.
“Was he (opposition leader) Raila Odinga not the one who said that not even a comma should be removed and was insulting (Wiper leader) Kalonzo (Musyoka), calling him a watermelon,” said Uhuru.
Speaking in Kambu, Makueni county, alongside his deputy William Ruto, Uhuru also expressed confidence they will defeat the opposition more convincingly than 2013.
“We trounced them in 2013 when they were running government and we were in the wilderness and also carrying a heavy burden on our shoulders. Who things that they can defeat us today?”4
President Kenyatta also mocked the opposition for calling him and the DP children of KANU, the independence party.
He said Raila’s deputy, Kalonzo Musyoka was a senior official in KANU for a long time, while others in the opposition had also held senior posts there.
