Kalonzo Accuses President Ruto of Becoming a Dictator a Day after Attending Mashujaa

Kalonzo Musyoka, the Wiper Party's leader, said that President William Ruto had become a dictator in his first month in office.

On Friday, October 21, Kalonzo made a statement to the media in which he questioned the veracity of Ruto's statements and claimed that the president did not have the support of a Cabinet that was fully formed.Legislators from Azimio La Umoja had just met with Kalonzo.

One of the declarations that Kalonzo emphasized was the promise that President Ruto made during the celebrations marking Mashujaa Day to construct 100 dams during his five years in office.On October 20, the Uhuru Gardens ceremony took place.The leader of the Wiper was there.

"The Deputy President and Cabinet Secretaries assist the President in carrying out the executive authority of the Republic in his capacity as head of state and government."Just because he is president, our Constitution does not grant him the authority to impose judgments on the country," Kalonzo stated.

The former vice president also questioned Ruto's decision to dissolve the Specific Service Unit (SSU), establish special funding for the National Police Service and the Judiciary, and promise to work with East African nations to produce fertilizer.

Kalonzo says that President Ruto's way of running the country is like how previous world leaders made it easier to set up autocratic regimes.He went on to say that the decision made by President Ruto to reward his supporters was a part of the effort to set up an autocratic government.

He cited instances of autocratic governments in Kenya's neighbors as evidence that the tendency could lead Kenya to ratify costly actions.

However, Kenyans should be aware, according to the Wiper boss, that individual decision-making and Ruto's evident propensity to elevate loyalists and other "yes men and women" put the country at high risk of error.
