Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party presidential candidate Raila Odinga has finally jetted back into the country.
The opposition leader landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and is expected to address his supporters at the famous Kamkunji grounds.
Earlier, Raila urged Kenyans to show up in large numbers he laid out the interests of the country, particularly after reports of a dossier by a whistleblower on the August 9 presidential election surfaced.
But speaking during an interdenominational church service in Kerugoya stadium in Kirinyaga County, Kenya’s President William Ruto sensationally claimed that cartels in the agriculture sector were funding Raila Odinga’s protests.
“These cartels and corrupt people in the coffee, tea, and milk industries are the ones financing the protests because of our plan to get rid of cartels,” President Ruto revealed.
The Head of State however maintained that he will not tolerate the cartels adding that the welfare of the Kenyan farmers must be protected.
“We must ensure that farmers’ businesses are thriving because they are the surest solutions for our food security intervention,” he said.
Ruto, said that the cartels who were funding the former Prime Minister were against uniting the country.
The president said that the profiteers were not doing so for the benefit of the hustlers but for their personal interests.
“Those who are against the unity that we see in our nation, that today they want to bring us old stories, I want to promise Kenya that we will not allow our country to be hostage to threats and blackmail by a few people who are looking for their personal interest we are going to serve all Kenyans equally irrespective of how they voted because we want to move our country to the next level,” he said.
