Today's Nation Newspaper headline has drawn strong criticism from Ruto supporters as it appeared to directly attack the Vice President. A shot of the headline has been shared by Mohamed Ali, the Member of Parliament for Nyali.
The headline seems to suggest that the Sputnik vaccine banned by the Ministry of Health yesterday had Ruto ties. The Ministry of Health through Cabinet Secretary Mutahi Kagwe, said that the vaccine was here illegally and therefore banning it and any other distribution of a vaccine by the private sector.

Ruto had been injected with the vaccine opting not to go for the government brought AstraZeneca which is being given for free. Unconfirmed sources allege that it might have had something to do with Ruto but that's all rumor for now.
The Sputnik V vaccine had arrived barely a week ago and a lot of people had gone for it, retailing at just 8000 shillings. This latest attack on Ruto will only make the situation worse. We await to see what the Vice President will say.
