The growing political animosity and renewed rivalry between ODM Leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto came fore when the two met at Statehouse last week as President Uhuru feted 29 Kenyan women among them Ida Odinga.
Rachel Ruto despite running an NGO that empowers women- through Table Banking, Women , Youth advocacy and research; and playing a Priestess, crisscrossing the Country while offering fervent prayers conspicuously missed among those who received State honors.
Sources claim that from the duo’s body language, one could sniff pungent blatant animosity towards each other. Ruto who arrived later at the event after hosting Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru at his Karen home following an IPSOS poll declaring both of them hard-eyed thieves of public resources was kept waiting outside Uhuru’s office for one hour as Raila, Uhuru and Ida locked themselves inside Uhuru’s office chatting and having tea.
For the one hour he was kept waiting, he was seen talking to Senior Statehouse operatives and that he was irked that Raila had been invited to such an important State function.
He was so infuriated that when he left the event,he tweeted “those running Injili ya Shetani that unless your father was a Minister, Vice-President or President, however hard you work, you must remain poor-and if not a pauper you must be corrupt and have stolen-they should know that those without godfathers- we have God the father.”
Minutes later, he deleted the tweet but the message was home.
