In Vihiga County, the home county of ANC Leader Musalia Mudavadi, at a rowdy Kenya Kwanza rally that was marked by sibling rivalry, Deputy President William Ruto lost his composure yet again.
Rival parties supporting ANC Vihiga governor candidate Alfred Agoi and UDA Sabatia parliamentary candidate Clement Sloya repeatedly interrupted Ruto’s speech.
A very enraged DP confronted one young supporter and told him to either keep quiet or leave the assembly after appealing with them numerous times.
ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi was not present at the rally held in his backyard.
“Tuwe na heshima. Kama kuna mtu ametumwa hapa kuja kuharibu mkutano museme sahii hivi mapema ama muondoke kwa hii mkutano. Mnataka Sloya aondoke? Basi nyamazane atapata nafasi aongee. Wewe kijana wacha kunijibu, unanijibu kama nani?
“Kama umeleta kisirani kwa hii mkutano utoke. Huwezi kuja hapa kuharibu mkutano. (Let us have respect. If anyone has been sent here to cause chaos at our meeting, reveal yourself early or just leave. Sloya will not leave but will address the meeting later. Young man, do not answer me. On what basis would you answer me? Do not bring trouble here and if you want, then leave but respect our gathering),” Ruto furiously stated.
Since it came to light that he nearly slapped President Uhuru Kenyatta, Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa, and his Interior counterpart Fred Matiang’i on a number of occasions, Ruto has been synonymous with slaps.
