branded the PM as the offending party.
"I donât wish him any harm and like any Kenyan, he is free to express his political ambitions in whichever party he feels is best for him," said Raila.
He, however, extended an olive branch to Ruto saying that if the Eldoret North MP makes up his mind, he is still welcome in ODM.
"I have no problem working with him again if he still feels so," said Raila.
According to Ruto, Raila should have fought against his inclusion among the Ocampo Six, the others being Tinderet MP Henry Kosgey, radio presenter Joshua Sang, Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta, Head of Public Service Francis Muthaura and Postmaster General Hussein Ali.
Ruto, who has already ditched ODM for UDM, has also accused Raila of wrecking ODM. He says the party has become like a religion, where divergent views are not allowed.
The Eldoret MP has always publicly stated that he used millions of shillings campaigning for Raila and spent four sleepless nights at the KICC to ensure ODM votes would not be stolen.
