Amani National Congress (ANC) leader and his counterpart Ford Kenya leader Moses Masika Wetangula were on Tuesday shocked when deputy president William Samoei Ruto took to the podium.
Just when the leaders were enjoying their Kajiado rally, William Ruto spoiled the show through a direct attack that was aimed at the two Luhya leaders, Kalonzo Musyoka and the ODM leader Raila Odinga.
According to Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula who are still part of the opposition under their National Super Alliance (NASA) betrayed Kenyans by abandoning their watchdog roles.
As a result, William Ruto asked Kenyans to reject these NASA opposition leaders since they were only hoodwinking Kenyans.
“You ran away from your responsibilities of oversight to become brokers and thieves in our government,” he lectured Wetangula and Musalia on behalf of the opposition.
“These people have failed miserably to manage simple duties of the opposition, how will they manage government that is more demanding? How can an opposition that runs a laundry for corrupt politicians tell us that they will fight corruption?” Ruto posed as Weta and Mudavadi watched helplessly to the extent of wishing that the ground could open up and just swallow them alive.
“Today KEMSA is stinking because opposition leaders are beneficiaries of the programme’s corrupt dealings, that is why it’s difficult to investigate what happened.” Continued the visibly angry Ruto.
Therefore, the second in command urged these opposition leaders to stop supporting the government agenda and pay attention to their opposition duties.
Consequently, K24 has established from highly classified sources that Ruto’s sentiments of castigating opposition did not go well with Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi because constitutionally they are still in the opposition having run under the NASA coalition which lost to Uhuruto’s Jubilee.
Thus, the two leaders wondered why Ruto was directly attacking them as not worthy to lead the country for running away from the opposition. In fact, the two Mulembe nation leaders are said to be rethinking their association with Ruto if he can openly lynch them with his mouth in public.
“William Ruto is always a smart politician but today he might have lost it completely the moment he started to attack opposition politicians knowing very well that he bagged two of them recently. Even the aides of these two Luhya leaders are not happy at all with DP’s inconsiderate remarks.”
Whether Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Moses Wetangula and Musalia Mudavadi will heed to Ruto’s advice and go back to check the excesses of the government is a matter of wait and see.
