The ANC leader further said Mr Odinga and Mr Kenyatta kicked Deputy President William Ruto out of the government after the March 2018 handshake.
“Dr Ruto stood with President Kenyatta from 2013 but after the 2017 polls, he sidelined him. The result of sidelining Dr Ruto is a bad economy. For the first time in history, the price of maize flour has exceeded that of sugar. We cannot proceed with this government,” said Mr Mudavadi.
Addressing the same rally, Dr Ruto described Mr Odinga as a project of the “deep state” and said he would beat him in the August polls. The DP said Mr Odinga has nothing new to offer to Kenyans, saying he had lost many elections.
“Is there any deep state and system that I don’t know? Do I look like someone who can be rigged out? We defeated the system in Msambweni and Kiambaa. We will beat Mr Odinga on August 9 early in the morning. They will do nothing,” said Dr Ruto.
The DP expressed optimism that Kenya Kwanza will form the next government. “The decision will be made by the people,” he said.
