On Monday, while in Nandi, DP Ruto asked Raila Odinga to reconsider his position and show up for the debate and that he had put enough energy to face off with the Azimio torchbearer today.
”I am asking him to come if not for any other reason it is so that he can tell Kenyans what is Tibim and Tialala,” an angry Ruto said in Nandi.
