Ruto: I Don’t Care if Raila’s Brother is IEBC Chair

Kenya kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto has yet again reiterated that he would not have had a problem if ODM leader Raila Odinga’s brother Obnuru Odinga was the IEBC chairman.

Ruto made the remarks during a meeting with the IEBC at Windsor Hotel, Nairobi.

The IEBC convened the Wednesday meeting to iron out issues of concern among the presidential candidates.

He said the issue of tribe or relations should not be a concern as long as the people in question were hired competitively.

“If our competitors have a problem with certain Kenyans who come from certain communities, you can work out with them,” Ruto told the IEBC chairman, Wafula Chebukati.

“Even if my competitor’s (Raila) brother was the chairman of IEBC, I would have no problem, so long as he is competitively recruited.”

Prior to the DP’s arrival, Raila, through his legal team, raised concerns that 10 of the 47 county election manager were from one tribe

IEBC however downplayed the complaint saying every Kenyan has a right to serve as long as they qualify for the role.

During the Wednesday meeting, Raila raised a number of issues with the IEBC.
