Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday momentarily stopped his speech and launched a scathing attack targeting former Prime Minister Raila Odinga and interior PS Karanja Kibicho.

What was meant to be launching of development initiatives took a drastic turn after DP Ruto abandoned his speech focusing on development midway, delving into politics  in a public rant that did not surprise many as he has done so severally in the past despite claiming that he is only focusing on development and unity.

Ruto who was shooting straight from the hip dismissed Raila Odinga, accusing him of underhand means to sink Jubilee and warned him to keep off Jubilee party affairs and focus on his ODM party.

“Huyu mtu wa vitandawili (this man of proverbs) is trying to destroy Jubilee, thinking that by doing so he will ascend to power. I want to tell him that Jubilee is built on a strong foundation and he will not succeed in bringing it down.

"Mr Odinga should sort out the mess in his party instead of intruding into Jubilee which is focusing on development," Ruto slammed.

He also appealed to Kenyans to pray for the former Prime minister, stating that he has been behaving in a funny way that only prayers can help.

"It is ridiculous that vitandwili man is teaching us how to manage our party affairs when his ODM house is in a crisis,"

"I think Kenyans should seek divine intervention for Mr Odinga so that he can stop behaving in a funny way," he said.
