William Ruto, the deputy president, is in serious danger for referring to Eugene Wamalwa, the defense chief of staff, as a woman.
This is in response to a group of local leaders who objected to the action, branding it a complete contempt for Wamalwa.
The leaders urged Ruto to show respect for the Luhya community’s leaders, who were led by outgoing County Assembly Speaker Joshua Werunga.
The outspoken speaker questioned what Ruto could do if he were to succeed retiring President Uhuru Kenyatta while urging the populace to punish the DP by voting him out of office.
Werunga reacted angrily, saying, “You cannot come here with our leaders and come to criticize one of our leaders; you came with Chris, Ferdinand, and others to insult Wamalwa, and I wonder what you can do when you ultimately become the president.”
Speaking at a coalition party event for Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya in Bukhungu, Kakamega County, Wamalwa sensationally alleged that William Ruto nearly struck him in 2018.
The former agriculture minister was upset, according to Wamalwa, who closely worked with Ruto during the 2013 General Election, after the CS led a team of Western Kenyan politicians and leaders to State House.
However, in his remarks on Tuesday, the DP responded to CS Wamalwa’s allegations that he nearly slapped him.
Instead of calling the CS a woman, the UDA presidential candidate referred to her as a woman, claiming that in their culture, men are not permitted to slap ladies like Eugene Wamalwa.
