Here’s Raila Junior’s brilliant clap back on Ruto’s tweet

Raila Odinga Junior has brilliantly shut out Deputy President William Ruto over a tweet accusing Nasa leader Raila Odinga of plotting to use violence to prevent voting in his strongholds during the repeat presidential election set for October 26.

The tweet shared on Saturday morning by the DP criticized the former prime minister saying, “So, the democrat, Mr Odinga will sponsor violence using his supporters & family to ensure there is no IEBC & no voting in nyanza? Surely!”

In response, Raila Junior defended his father, pointing it out to Mr Ruto that there will be no elections with or without the Odinga family.

Last week on Tuesday the Nasa presidential candidate withdrew his candidature in the October 26 repeat presidential elections.

Mr Odinga said the decision was arrived at after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission failed to meet the irreducible minimum reforms demanded by the opposition for election to be termed as credible.

Since them the opposition party has been holding demonstrations in various parts of the country to push for electoral reforms.

Leaders from the coalition and their supporters are expected to boycott the forthcoming election.
