Weeks After Ruto Billboards Were Destroyed, Angry Kisumu Residents Destroy Ruto's Crucial Item Again

Several weeks ago, troubling news surfaced in Kisumu, indicating that Kenya's democratic space still lacks the desired political maturity fifty years after independence.

Residents of Kisumu damaged a campaign billboard for vice president William Ruto, a situation that prompted widespread criticism from the two leading coalitions.

And yesterday, a similar event occurred in the same county when enraged Kisumu residents burned a shipment of William Ruto signed books that were destined for a local hotel.

The books written by author Babior Newtown with the title "The Rise of a Hustler" were burned because, according to the teenagers, the book disparages ODM leader Raila Odinga.

As we were relaxing here today, some individuals came to distribute books that harmed the reputation of ODM leader Raila Odinga. "The young asserted that he fought for our democracy, and we reject all attempts to trash his reputation.

The author has criticized the incident and declared that he will make an official police report.
