Raila dismisses Ruto’s claims of existence of the “deep State”

ODM leader Raila Odinga has said claims by Deputy President William Ruto the “Deep State and System” was working to block him from taking over power in 2022 are baseless.

Addressing the press on Thursday, Mr. Odinga said he was not aware of any such group adding that he holds no position in government.

“Go and ask Mr. Deputy President which deep State are you talking about… we are not in government as ODM. So we don’t know about this deep state,” Mr. Odinga said.

Mr. Ruto on Tuesday accused the group of erecting roadblocks on his State House bid and dared them to bring it on saying he believed in God.
