Ruto hits at leaders claiming Uhuru will extend his term

Published

Deputy President William Ruto has mocked a section of politicians who have been advocating for President Uhuru Kenyatta to delay his retirement after his term ends in 2022.

Ruto said those pushing for Kenyatta to stay on in power were misrepresenting the position of the President.

The DP used a popular meme originating from Tanzanian MP Seleman Bungara with his Wewe Oooliskia wapi signature question.

“The BBI has all manner of cards flying. Sometimes we are told they want another layer of bureaucracy, sometimes it is about extension of terms. I do not think President Kenyatta has told anyone that he wants his term extended. Where are all these people getting this. I dare ask, Ooliskia wapi?” the DP stated.

Ruto added that it was important for the BBI process to focus on eradicating poverty and creating a stronger economy.

“The Building Bridges Initiative needs to be progressive, advancing our common purposes and expanding opportunity for all. It should appreciate our diversity and help build a stronger economy to move Kenyans out of poverty and unemployment.”

“It should be a unifying and people-centered document rather than a political tool that is in defiance of the spirit of inclusivity, abused by some leaders to breed division, hate and ethnic animosity,” the Deputy President said.

Ruto spoke at his Karen residence where he received a delegation of opinion leaders led by political strategist Eliud Owalo.

Owalo has joined the Ruto team after resigning from Musalia Mudavadi’s political strategy.

Kenyan rapper Nyashinski has recalled how he had it tough after he quit music and his family relocated to the United States of America.

During a sit-down with Nairobi County Senator Johnson Sakaja, the Tuendelee Tusiendelee rapper revealed that he quit music to become a truck driver something that was hectic and lonely as most of the time he was on the road for long hours, with only a few minutes to interact with people.

“Nilikuwa nishaachana na ngoma…2006 mpaka 2016 (10 years). Nilienda Steto na nilikuwa naendesha Lorry…nilikuwa naendesha Lorry nikitry ku-survive juu tuli-relocate wote as a family.

“The first two years I was in Delaware, alafu the last 8 years nikahamia Michigan. Hiyo experience ilikuwa noma na nili-learn nayo vitu mob. Kuna vitu mbili zenye zilihappen zenye naonanga ni life changing,” he said.

He disclosed that before he moved with his family to the USA he was already a shining star in the Kenyan music scene as he was doing what he loves.

He added that he went from being a star to a normal person who had to work hard to put food on the table as there were no favors in the US as no one knew him.

“Before nitoke hapa nilikuwa a star. Tulikuwa maceleb and we were doing what we Love. So you come from being a star, getting a bit of favors here and there to a place where no one knows you, hakuna special treatment, Lazima uwork, kama huwork haukuli na labda si kazi unapenda necessarily,” added Nyashinski.

He explained that long-distance driving was lonely as he only had 10 to 15 minutes of interacting with people.

However, he added that he always wanted to live a normal life and that was the good side of relocating to the United States of America.

The rapper and his wife Zia Bett were recently welcomed their firstborn child whom he revealed is a boy.

DP Ruto hits at Raila, Atwoli in lengthy social media post 

Published

BY KEVIN KOECH

Deputy President William Ruto retaliated after Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga accused him of opposing the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report which is said to be aiming at bringing all Kenyans together.

In a statement, the DP accused Raila Odinga of being the beneficiary tribalism and poverty in the country adding that he was mad that the hustlers (his supporters) had had enough of his games.

“The lords of tribalism and poverty who are masters or beneficiaries of political violence are very mad at the unbowed hustler’s movement. Why? The hustlers have refused the tribe configuration and instead, they want a conversation on their individual hustles which are tribeless.

“Tribe has been hijacked by tribal chiefs to benefit themselves and their families to the detriment of hustlers and their children. And enough is enough,” he wrote.

He added that Kenyans were yearning for empowerment and not power and positions of the mighty.

He accused Raila Odinga of being the leader of the ethnic division with no respect of rule of law and democratic election outcomes.

He further added that he had a track record of chaos and anarchy and was re-introducing himself with the BBI report.

“The hustlers, as a minimum, want a nee conversation. Not about anyone’s tribe but about the hustles of each one of us. Not about power but about empowerment. Not about positions for the mighty but about jobs for the ordinary. Surely, that is not too much to ask! Is it?”

“But instead, known ethnic chieftains, with no respect for rule of law or democratic election outcomes, complete with track records of chaos and anarchy, are at it again. This time with the BBI. Threatening confrontation with anyone with an alternative or contrary opinion to theirs,” he added.

Ruto’s statement comes after Raila Odinga hinted that the BBI report was “around the corner”.

He went to claim that the DP was a “voice of impunity that thrives in corruption and outright lies”.
