KIAMBU, KENYA: Jubilee coalition presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta has told his rivals in CORD to table evidence he stole public wealth.

Uhuru was responding to Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s remark that Jubilee leaders must return stolen public property, including land.

“If you have any evidence that I have stolen anything, table it,” retorted Uhuru.

Uhuru spoke when he led leaders from Jubilee coalition to a rally at Githunguri Stadium in Kiambu.

He was accompanied by among others his running mate and URP party leader William Ruto.

A visibly angry Uhuru challenged Raila to tell Kenyans what he had in store for them or quit the presidential race.

Uhuru accused the PM of engaging in cheap politics.

Democratic right

Uhuru said CORD campaign team has been dwelling on insults and hate speech, which he vowed they would not be party to.

“We will not be drawn into such campaigns. For the sake of the country, let us concentrate on development issues and avoid mentioning opponents in every rally,” he added.

Uhuru reiterated that 2013 will be the year of Jubilee, adding that the country was ready for the coalition’s leadership.
