Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Raila Odinga on Sunday hinted at a possible stab at the country’s top seat in the 2022 General Elections.
Mr. Odinga, who spoke during a rally in Mombasa flanked by Governor Ali Hassan Joho, intimated that he is ready for the battle.
The former premier also threw an albeit subtle jab at Deputy President William Ruto accusing him of using church donations to mask his true intentions.
The ODM party chief urged Kenyans not to be fooled by hand-outs saying that would be tantamount to walking themselves to slaughter.
“Baba hajachoka, ako tayari, je mko tayari? Kwa hivo mwachane na wale wezi ambao wanahujumu mali ya wananchi…wakishaiba, wanaingia kanisani eti anatoa kwa Mungu…eti yeye ni mkarimu…anarudi nayo pande hii ingine eti anatoa mchango ya wheelbarrow,” he said.
“Huyo ni kama yule ambaye anataka kuchinja kuku, anachukua mahindi anaita kuku…kuku anakula mahindi anafikiria jamaa leo ni mkarimu sana, hajui kwamba jamaa haja yake siO kumlisha, haja yake ni kitoweo…mjihadhari na ile fisi. Fisi amejificha kwa nguo ya kondoo…”

Mr. Odinga on Saturday drummed up support for the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) in the Coast region saying it would increase the national cake which he said has since become too small.
He condemned the clash over the revenue allocation formula at the Senate saying the slightly over Ksh.316 billion that is meant to be distributed among counties is a mere drop in the ocean of the national budget
