Speaking at an interview with a local tv station, Garissa MP Aden Dwale contradicted President Uhuru’s speech which seemed to describe UDA as a sprinter in a race doomed to fail.
“I want to assure the president that with the energy we have and the capacity we have, we will finish this race sprinting. We are not ready for the marathon. He’d better tell the Prime Minister that these guys will sprint until August 8th, 2022,” Duale stated.
On Tuesday during his address in Nakuru County, President Uhuru had indirectly hinted Odinga’s leadership as best suited for the nation
“Uongozi sio mpira ya kuchezwa kwa uwanja; uongozi sio sprint ni marathon. Wewe utakimbia by the time umefika pale pumzi imeisha, lakini mzee ambaye amekanyaga polepole akuje akupite ukiwa kwa bara bara,” Uhuru advised.
Duale compared DP Ruto and his rival Odinga stating that Uhuru meant to plead with the Ruto’s led UDA team to ‘slow down for Baba to catch up.’
“He is trying to tell us, you guys are too fast, you guys will kill this mzee. This Mzee can’t run at your pace,” stated Duale.
The MP reassured Kenyans of UDA’s victory come 2022, Duale went forth to outline the campaign strategy of the UDA party which he said would take the country by storm in the days to come.
“We will do a campaign that has never been seen in the country. Because we want to win the elections by minimum 2 million votes so that it happens like in 2002 where the runners up just go to Serena to congratulate us,” Duale stated.
