Let everyone carry their own cross - Raila fires back at DP Ruto's camp

A storm is brewing between the handshake allies

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga

Deputy president William Ruto's emissaries had claimed that the Kalenjin community is under siege to deter the DP's 2022 ambitions.

"The DCI, EACC, DPP and the Attorney-General should not turn the fight against corruption into a tool to ethnically profile some people and brand them corrupt.

"We will not allow it to happen…we will not sit back and allow you to ethnically profile our people with l vested interest, in bad faith and with politically motivated charges," Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei claimed soon after KPC CEO Joe Sang and former NHIF boss Simeon Kirgotty were arrested.

Corruption is about Individuals

The former Prime Minister dismissed the claims stating that the anti-graft war is targeting individuals and everyone will have to bear his own responsibility.

"When people loot, they don’t do it so that they can share it with their communities, but to eat alone.

"Therefore, I want to tell politicians and members of Parliament who want to mislead Kenyans (that their communities are being targeted) to stop it. Let everyone carry their own cross," Raila stated.

He added: "They should stop the propaganda that certain communities are being fought because I haven’t seen that happening.

"If your office is raided and it's established that money has been stolen, you must take full responsibility," the former PM insisted.

DP Ruto's camp has also questioned why the courts are yet to convict any suspects of corruption.
