The Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga led his team in storming his major rival, Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential candidate William Ruto’s backyard in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County on Sunday.
Raila received a warm welcome from members of the public who thronged Huruma Grounds to show their support for Raila ahead of the much-awaited August 9 election.
His running mate, Martha Karua, accompanied him on the campaign trail of the Rift Valley.
The former premier and his running mate assured Eldoret residents that if they win the election, they will deal with the high cost of living that is affecting many Kenyans.
Raila promised to revive agriculture in the region which he termed the country’s breadbasket because the leaders from the region have failed them.
He said they will put up industries to create jobs for the youth and improve agriculture.
"We must put up industries to create jobs for our youth and also improve our agriculture," Raila said.
Raila challenged Ruto to disqualify his running mate Rigathi Gachagua, saying he was not fit to hold any public office and described him as a convict.
"We are running against convicted thieves and they can not fool Kenyans anymore."
The former Prime Minister promised Kenyans will witness a significant change within the first 100 days of the assumption of office and reminded Kenyan citizens that they have to choose between liberation or corruption, which he pledges to fight to the core.
"Our country is at crossroads. We must choose if we want liberation or continued corruption," Raila said.
While speaking during the campaigns, Karua hit out at Ruto accusing him of lying that his life and his family were in danger, yet he enjoys the full protection of the government with over 250 security officers at his disposal as he still is a government employee.
"He is still an employee of the government as DP with full protection," Karua said.
Former Gatanga MP also told Ruto there was nobody after his life nor that of his family, as he claims therefore there was no cause for alarm.
