Uasin Gishu Women Representative Gladys Shollei has claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta is using ODM leader Raila Odinga to run for a presidential race for the third time.
Speaking to KTN News, MP Shollei said that the talks that President Uhuru is acting as a buffer between the Deputy President William Ruto and Raila are intended to intimidate the DP.
“Raila is not the candidate, Uhuru is. The claims that Uhuru is a buffer between Ruto and Raila are but just bravado talks,” Shollei said.
According to her, President Uhuru’s end game is to control the legislative house.
MP Shollei urged Uhuru to remain neutral in the presidential race and allow Kenyans to make their democratic choice freely.
“That’s why Ruto urged the President to leave Raila alone. He is a seasoned politician,” she said, adding that Raila was not capable of winning the election.
This comes after DP Ruto pleaded with President Uhuru to spare him the sword he claimed they used on Raila during his Gatundu tour on Friday.
Ruto further urged President to remember the times when Mama Ngina prayed for them and refrain from hurting him.
Previously, the DP’s speeches about the president were harsh but last week, he has shown that he is rattled by the support Raila is getting.
On Saturday, Ruto claimed he was Uhuru’s only true friend.
He was speaking at Murang’a.
