Tuesday July 2, 2019 - Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party Communication Director, Philip Etale, has told off Deputy President William Ruto after he labelled Former Prime Minister, Raila Amolo Odinga, the Lord of Poverty.
In a post on social media, Etale said that Ruto has proven beyond doubt that he is not a true leader after his recent attacks on the African Union Special Envoy.
He noted that the ODM Leader deserves respect from different politicians, including Ruto.
He further said that it is unfortunate when leaders can make such remarks in public and expect to be elected into higher officers in the near future
“William Ruto has been making careless and reckless remarks aimed at H.E. Raila Odinga.”
“He uses a bad language not befitting a leader holding the position he occupies in our great Republic of Kenya,” Etale tweeted.
Speaking at a women’s empowerment forum in Ekerenyo, Nyamira County, Ruto launched a scathing attack against Raila, terming him an enemy of progress.
According to Ruto, Raila has developed the habit of opposing all Government projects to show that Jubilee has failed in its leadership.
He vowed to continue doing what he considered good work as he prepares to take over from President Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
“You were against the Eurobond because you said it was corrupt; you were against the Northern Collector Tunnel, because you said it was corrupt; you were against us building the (Standard Gauge) Railway, you told us it was corrupt,” he said.
