In his second public rally to mobilise supporters to oppose President William Ruto’s leadership, Azimio La Umoja leader Raila Odinga on Sunday warned the head of state against underestimating him.
Odinga, who lost to Ruto in a tightly contested presidential race in August last year, gave an address at the Jacaranda Gardens in Nairobi, where he told the president to look at Kenya’s historical precedence, especially his role as an opposition leader.
Odinga particularly pointed out his influence in Kenya’s second president Daniel Moi’s Nyayo regime and urged Ruto and his deputy, Rigathi Gachagua not to take him lightly.
“Ruto and Gachagua have been threatening me, saying all manner of things about my protests. I want to tell Ruto, you don’t know about us. Go ask Mr Nyayo. The power of the people is the voice of God,” the former prime minister said.
