Apologise over voter bribery, Khalwale behaviour in Kibra, ODM tells DP Ruto

ODM indicated that they will never apologise to Ruto who according to them is throwing tantrums after losing the two by-elections and instead will apologise to the people of Ganda and Kibra for the chaos meted out on them by Ruto. “We know he is frustrated and isolated after Kibra loss, but we urge Kenyans to ignore him and instead foster unity for a better Kenya,” said the party.
