Ruto asked Kang’ata to go back and get KSh 100,000 and donate adding that if he does not have it, he was willing to loan him.
“Don’t you want the governorship? No, KSh 40,000 is not for a governor. Go get KSh 100,000 and bring it. Do not disturb us,” Ruto said as Kang’ata obliged while the crowd laughed.
Storming Uhuru’s backyard.
Ruto stormed President Uhuru Kenyatta’s backyard days after the head of state’s controversial ‘thief’ remark.
29, Uhuru left Ruto and his allies with a bitter taste in his mouths after asking Kenyans not to elect a thief or crook, utterances that were deemed as a reference to the DP.
Uhuru said the country deserves a leader who will not water down his legacy or compromise the economic foundation initially built by retired president Mwai Kibaki.
A day later, the DP’s ally Aden Duale blasted Uhuru over the utterances and said if he has any evidence on any presidential aspirant being a thief, he should ask investigative agencies to arrest him or her.
“Mr president you are telling us that the eight million Jubilee supporters are full of crooks, conmen and thieves. That is an insult to the Jubilee family and to your supports,” Duale said on Saturday, October 30.
“Do not be general! Be specific. A leader must talk with specificity,” he added.
