National Super Alliance (Nasa) pioneer Raila Odinga on Sunday called Thirdway Alliance presidential competitor Ekuru Aukot a deceiver and asked the lady in his life to separate him.
Mr Odinga made the comments at a rally at Mama Ngina Drive in Mombasa, hours after he came back from an excursion in the United Kingdom.
Mr Odinga asked why Mr Aukot now needed to be on the tally paper, regardless of a prior guarantee to blacklist the race if no changes were done at the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
“Walisema wameinua mikono, sasa wanasema wanataka kusimama kama rais wa Kenya. Wanapewa siku kumi wafanye campaign. Campaign gani? Jamaa ata ana aibu, anakubali jina lake liweke kwa karatasi,” wondered Mr Odinga.
He asked the cheering crowd if this man had a wife.
The opposition leader also launched a scathing attack on Deputy President William Ruto, accusing him of propagating false claims that the opposition is pushing for a coalition government.
Mr Odinga said Nasa does not want to be in a coalition with Jubilee but wants to run a government “that will be an all-inclusive government, improve the lives of poor Kenyans and initiate people-driven policies on infrastructure.”
“Ruto was among the people who convinced me to accept the coalition government back in 2008. He even told me to accept and make him Minister for Agriculture… we are not interested in a nusu mkate government,” said Mr Odinga.
