During one of his campaign rallies, vice president and leader of the Kenya Kwanza alliance William Ruto went bare-knuckled on President Uhuru Kenyatta. The Head of State is completely to blame for the difficult economic times that are currently hitting the nation, according to Ruto and his allies who placed blame on him.
Ruto made a suggestion that, should he and his coalition establish the government, he may think about detaining President Uhuru as a result. The head of state, according to Ruto and his associates, launched projects that resulted in the theft of public resources and a high cost of living.
Ruto and his colleagues cited a number of issues, including the Building Bridges Initiative's failure and the KEMSA affair, in which the government neglected to bring charges against those responsible.
However, Kenyans' reactions to Ruto's statement have been conflicted, with some criticizing him and claiming he will not be elected president and others supporting the idea of Uhuru's prosecution. Here are a few of the online comments.
