Tuesday July 2, 2019 - Uasin Gishu Women Representative, Gladys Shollei, has joined forces with Deputy President William Ruto in castigating Opposition Leader Raila Odinga for propagating poverty in the country.
Speaking in an interview on Monday, the vocal legislator went on to compare Raila’s performance in 30 years as a Kibra MP to that of the ailing current MP, Ken Okoth, of 8 years arguing that Okoth has performed far much better than the former Prime Minister.
Shollei accused Raila of capitalizing on corruption to justify his opposition and making no efforts to redeem his followers from poverty.
“Raila Odinga was Kibra MP for almost 30 years but it is the poorest place in this country; I have seen the work Kennedy Odede has done and it is more than Raila would have ever done.” she said.
Shollei was responding to Ruto’s latest attack on Monday where he unleashed ‘the Lord of Poverty’ tirade against Raila.
On Monday, Ruto who was speaking in Nyamira said Raila Odinga is an economic saboteur who has been opposing major projects that the Jubilee Government has initiated.
“You are the Lord of Poverty and we will destroy your Kingdom with policies that uplift the poor and progress the Nation,” Ruto said.
