You have no morals to lead the country- Raila

Azimio brigade has told Deputy President William Ruto  to drop his presidential bid since he had no morals  required   of a leader .

Led by its presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga   also dismissed Ruto’s running mate as a convicted criminal who should not be anywhere near public leadership.

Campaigning at the Kerugoya stadium in Kirinyaga County ahead of the August 9 general elections, Raila urged Kenyans to reject leaders with integrity issues.

He also said his    main rival and UDA leader had no agenda for the   country except mare political rhetoric.

Accompanied  by his running mate Martha Karua , Azimio  CEO Raphael Tuju , Agriculture CS Peter Munya among other leaders, the presidential contender  assured Kenyans the high living standards will be brought down under his administration .

“Other than providing free education from Nursery school through to the University, for the children we have also a medical cover program as contained in our manifestos where medical care will  be provided to all Kenyans ,” he said.

Karua on her part  asked the local Jubilee and Narc-kenya gubernatorial candidates  to sit at a round table and come up with one contender by this evening who will fly the  Azimio frag .

“Since Jubilee and Narc-kenya parties are all in Azimio , we should have  either Charles Kibiru or Muriithi  Kagai steping aside  and leave one candidate  to battle it with the UDA one short of which we will be beaten  flat  down ,” she said.

She said  she had constituted a committee of local  elders whom she mandated to carry out the exercise and come up with one name by this evening while the  one dropped will be considered for a state job.

Munya on the other promised to visit the county tomorrow morning to establish why area residents have not received the subsidised  maize meal .

He made the promise after a hue and cry from the residents who had attended the campaign rally this morning.

They told Munya   the Unga   was nowhere in the local supermarkets despite the government’s promise that the commodity was available .

The CS said he will  be finding out whey the commodity was  missing yet  the millers had been paid  the necessary  subsidy  as agreed .

Others present were  Peter Kenneth , Muranga’s  Sabina Chege , Kirinyaga Central MP Munene Wambugu  and Mwea’s  Kabinga Wachira.

Gubernatorial running mates Peter Ndambiri of Jubilee and Narc-kenya’s Ndegwa Njiru .
