Odinga posted a clip on Twitter that aimed to depict Ruto as a double-speaking leader with the video edited to show the DP’s contradicting a previous statement.
Raila went ahead and told off the DP for making promises in 2013 that are yet to be fulfilled.
“Mr. Six months! The youngsters you promised laptops 8 yrs ago are now old enough to see through your lies. The youth you promised 8 million jobs in 8 years can see through the wheelbarrow lie you are now peddling,” Odinga stated.
On Friday, Ruto blamed Raila for derailing Jubilee’s development agenda, a clip that Raila used to draw the doublespeak.
“You are squarely to blame for the failure of this administration to deliver on our mandate because you came and overturned our priorities,” Ruto had stated in the video.
“My friend, the fact that I am elected Deputy President means that the people of Kenya if things go wrong in this government, president Uhuru Kenyatta and I will be the one to be asked….Forget about the cabinet secretaries. Actually, the people who were given the mandate to run this country by the people of Kenya is the president and I.”
On Sunday, the former prime minister gave the DP a new nickname in front of a fired-up congregation at St. Joachim and Anne Catholic Church, Kayole, Nairobi.
“There are people like ‘Mr. Six Months Time’, In six months time we shall give all children in schools laptops, in six months time we shall give one million jobs to our youth, in six months we shall build 47 modern stadia, in six months we shall build tarmacked roads,” noted Raila.
Raila stated that Ruto had pretended to shift his focus to the common mwananchi such as vegetable vendors by issuing wheelbarrows and handcarts.
Mr Six months!
The youngsters you promised laptops 8 yrs ago are now old enough to see through your LIES.
The youth you promised 8 million jobs in 8 yrs can see through the WHEELBARROW lie you are now peddling.
