Opposition leader Raila Odinga has fired back at DP William Ruto over his 'bedroom' comments.

Raila said that there was no problem inviting his friends to the Kibra campaign which has been considered as his political backyard.

"Others are barking saying Raila has called people to his bedroom. What is wrong with me calling people to my bedroom. You only invite friends to your bedroom," the ODM leader stated.

Earlier on Dr Ruto had thrown a jab at Mr Odinga for calling on his allies to help campaign for Imran Okoth in the Kibra by-election.

DP Ruto's jab

Speaking in Nakuru the DP said that men should not ask for help in their bedroom.

"Things are thick in Kibra, the bedroom man has now asked for help. If you see someone asking for help in their bedroom just know things are thick," DP Ruto stated.

"In the bedroom, everyone should fight for themselves. When you see a man asking for reinforcement just know things are thick," he added.

Mr Odinga led a meeting involving members of the Kamba community in which governors Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and Alfred Mutua (Machakos) pledged to support the ODM party candidate.

During the Sunday campaigns, Mr Odinga was also joined by Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru who dismissed claims by Dr Ruto of developing Kibra if Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga is elected as MP.

"We must say in plain truth that the country is peaceful because of the handshake. We will protect it," she said.

"The others who claim they want to bring developments are just baiting you. They are a one-man guitar, unlike Imran who is the fruit of handshake," the Kirinyaga governor added.
