Lawyer Mutahi Ngunyi Defends Junet Mohamed, Differs With Lawyer Ahmednasir on Respecting Ruto

Political commentator Mutahi Ngunyio and attorney Ahmednasir Abdullahi disagree on this statement regarding respect for President William Ruto.

This comes after Ahmednasir censured Azimio for failing to approach President Ruto with the proper titles while serving as secretary general Junet Mohamed.

"Use H.E. Ruto's proper title when addressing him. Please, be respectful "said he.

However, in response to Ahmednasir's remarks, Mutahi Ngunyi said:

"My friend @ahmednasirlaw, you are wrong. You cannot ask @JunetMohamed to respect Ruto. You command respect. You do not ask for it. But we must respect the office that Ruto occupies," Ngunyi tweeted.

During a news conference, Junet spoke out strongly against Ruto.

The speech was given before their Kamukunji meeting, which, according to him, will serve as a consultative forum.

When speaking to the President, Junet addressed him by his last name and claimed that even if they had chosen to stage protests at Kamukunji, he would have done little to nothing to put an end to it.

Even though we don't have any demonstrations scheduled, Junet emphasized that Ruto would still have done nothing if that had been the case.

The MP claimed that they are free to exercise their democratic rights without the current administration placing any restrictions on them.

He cannot halt any demonstrations in Kenya. We cannot elect a leader who believes democracy ends with his/her election.
