On Tuesday, July, 12 Moses Kuria highlighted that Uhuru has made raila think that unity is more important than what fellow kenyans go through economically.
“The biggest problem with Azimio is that they are so distant from the realities of the common man. Sometimes I look at Raila and wonder if that is the man I knew. He has been taken away from reality by his brother (Uhuru).
“He has been taken away from the common man and their suffering which is driving the voter sentiment. For them, the Azimio common man is still in history where it is about unity and appeasement,” Kuria argued.
He However said that Uhuru’s actions were giving William Ruto a bi cutting edge
“Uhuru is my good friend and he has messed Raila by taking him away from the common man. Raila of the past was more to the common man than even us who were opposing him at that particular time. Now it is the reverse. Even in Kibra, they are not feeling him even though they will vote for him.
“When the price of maize flour rises, you find that Raila is the first one to defend saying that we should put the blame on Ukraine and not Uhuru. This is not him.”
