Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga has accused Deputy President William Ruto of wooing voters using looted public funds.

Speaking in Nyeri county on Saturday, November 27 in his popularisation tour of the Azimio la Umoja campaign, Raila urged voters to accept handouts from the DP stating that the money belongs to the public.

"I want to tell you if that money is brought to you, eat it, it is yours. Take that money because it is yours and it was stolen from you," Raila said.

Supporting Raila, Kieni Member of Parliament Kanini Kega argued that Raila is the only leader who can form the next government stating that there are dealers who are selling their conman ship agenda.

"Come 2022 Kenyans have an option of electing either a leader or a dealer. The leader is here, Raila is the right choice for us, he is a leader and not a dealer, our people will be safe under his leadership," he said.

Kega further stated that Raila has the experience needed to steer the country to greater economic heights urging the vote rich Mt Kenya region to back Raila's presidential bid.

“I am prepared to lose Kieni parliamentary seat if campaigning for Baba is the reason. I will not stop even if the rest of my colleagues from this region are playing safe politics, I will campaign for Raila till the last rally in 2022,” Kega said on November 3.

Raila wrapped up his political tour of Mt Kenya region on Saturday with a meeting of the Azimio La Umoja at the Ruringu Stadium in Nyeri town.

Present were Nyandarua Governor Francis Kimemia, Laikipia's Ndiiritu Muriithi, Nyeri Town Member of Parliament Ngunjiri Mbugua, Suba North Member of Parliament Millie Odhiambo and Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris among others.
