Giving an analogy of a person who goes to bath in a river, but a mad man picks his clothes and instead of being patient he goes chasing after the mad man, the head of State said that Ruto driven by his selfish needs abandoned him thus leaving him no choice but to seek Raila Odinga’s assistance.

“When I realized that Ruto is not a trustworthy person, I went for Odinga and since then, this country has been peaceful. That is why I am asking you to elect Odinga and Karua am driven by need for peaceful and prosperous nation, ” he stated.
