The two leaders do not see eye to eye on a number of political issues.

ODM leader Raila Odinga has called on the National Security Committee not to go ahead with its plans to table a bill which seeks to criminalise DP William Ruto’s hustler vs dynasty campaign sloganeering.

In a statement to newsrooms to Wednesday, the ODM leader said eventhough the narrative was very dangerous and compared it to the Nazi- Germany, Raila appealed to MPs to drop any attempts to legislate against the narrative.

”It is a dangerous slogan..it is scary in its similarity to Adolf Hitler’s national socialism referred to as Nazism. However, I would strongly appeal to MPs to drop any attempts to legislate against this otherwise deadly slogan,” Raila said, asking the authorities to allow Ruto and his team to continue using the slogan without any state inhibitions.

“Those of us who see its dangers should continue educating our people against falling for it. I have Faith that Kenyans will see through the divisive and potentially deadly rhetoric and its attacks on Kenyans and reject it in the ends.”
