He called the opposition chief ”backward and petty” without mentioning his name, adding that he thrives on propaganda and lies.

The Jubilee leader mentioned Odinga’s claim of the World Bank funded multi-billion shillings Northern Water Collector Tunnel project being a secret initiative that would turn some counties into deserts.

”You must understand a man and his thinking of his backwardness and pettiness… pettiness… pettiness..”

”He thrives on the division of Kenyans and poverty. Uwanja wake ni wa matope. We will not divert from our objectives,” he further added as he spoke in a mixture of English and Kiswahili.

”Wacha aendelee na matope yake sisi tuendelee na maendeleo,”

Uhuru went on to confirm that it was Raila Odinga who started the project while he was Prime Minister in a bid to get votes from Muranga.
