Politician Behind Ruto's Teargas In Jacaranda Rally Unmasked

On Sunday the 16th of January William Ruto held a political rally in Embakasi area. Jacaranda gardens was the final destination to culminate it all. The meeting was not fruitful as the motorcade of Ruto was stoned by rowdy youths. This forced police to throw teargas to the crowds.

The politician behind the disruption has been unmasked. Ruto has directly accused Raila Odinga of selling fear. The deputy president spoke after the whole scene was calmed down. He has angrily said that they will not stop him Kisumu then follow him to Nairobi.

The situation was a chance of Ruto to seek sympathy votes. He is unlike other politicians who move away in such situations. His political allies took a firm stance against political violence. These include nominated senator Millicent Omanga and bishop Margaret Wanjiru.

Ruto's tour in Nairobi has somehow been successful in some parts the city. His foot soldiers are trying their best to popularize the UDA party.
