Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday toured Isiolo county during one of his empowerment forums for churches. He took this opportunity to propel his hustler gospel as he rallied residents to support his 2022 presidential bid. Ruto further gave the clearest indication that he might use UDA for his presidential bid after publicly vouching for the Kazi ni Kazi slogan which is synonymous with UDA.
“Addressing wananchi at Isiolo Town after presiding over the empowerment of 70 churches in the company of more than 15 MPs, Isiolo County. The Hustler drive focuses on ordinary people’s issues. It is the uplifting of those at the base of the wealth pyramid & the conversion of Kenya into a more enterprising country. It is not limited to the physical distribution of wheelbarrows but an appreciation that Kazi Ni Kazi,” shared DP Ruto on Twitter.
However, the second in command received sharp opposition in Isiolo town where rowdy youths stormed his rally and heckled him while declaring their support for BBI. From the video making rounds of social media, the youths are heard chanting “BBI Tosha, Tunataka BBI, Hatuko pamoja na wewe.” Ruto who was struggling to give his speech was forced to cut it short.
The booing and heckling of political leaders in rallies are becoming a worrying trend that if left unchecked will worsen heading into the 2022 elections. Word on the streets is that these youths are usually paid and incited by certain opposing politicians to commit such acts.
ODM party leader Raila Odinga faced a similar situation in Githurai a few weeks ago. Agriculture cabinet secretary Peter Munya was also booed at a funeral in Gatundu North recently while Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka faced the same humiliation during the burial of Machakos senator Boniface Kabaka.
