'Wacha hasira, omba kura polepole!' ODM Chairman John Mbadi tells DP Ruto
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party National Chairman John Mbadi has urged
Deputy President William Ruto and his allies to keep their campaign agenda
professional and avoid bringing emotions into politics.
According to Mbadi, every politician has a right to declare their political allegiance, as such the DP should not take it personally if some of them chose other sides rather than his.
“Nataka kuguzia hii siasa inaendelea ya hasira, mimi naona naibu wa rais anaongea na hasira ni kama amenyang’anywa ardhi ama nyumba yake imebomolewa ata unashangaa huyu mtu tumemkosea nini,” Mbadi said at Chungwa House during a meeting with Marsabit leaders on Wednesday.
“Ukiona anaongea juu ya Kiraitu Murungi na makosa ya Kiraitu Murungi ni kuunga Baba mkono, sasa waliandikana wapi wakisema Kiraitu Murungi lazima auunge Ruto mkono? Si ata yeye ako na watu wanamuunga mkono? Sasa kabla hujapata ata urais unaanza kuonyesha hasira watu wakikosa kukupea support…”
Mbadi, who is also the Suba South MP, told the DP to sell his policies to the people in a calm manner and, if they like it, then they will elect him.
He further urged DP Ruto to emulate the ways of ODM chief and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga as far as the 2022 political campaigns are concerned.
“Hiyo hasira sisi hatutaki. Kuomba kura ni polepole, omba kura polepole na utembee sehemu zote za nchi ukiomba kura na utulivu na unyenyekevu, na kama ni majaliwa ya Mungu utapata,” he said.
“Hiyo ndio unaona Baba anaongea hata huwezi kujua ni mzee anaweza omba watu kura zao. Alienda Coast uliona vile alinyenyekea, alienda Mlima Kenya na ameenda Isiolo na atakuja Marsabit, nyinyi mtampokea akikuja Marsabit.”
