Tangatanga Politician Caleb Kositany Alleges why Mutahi Kagwe Banned Vaccine Recently Used by Ruto

The COVID-19 situation in the country continues to deteriorate even as the Government moves with speed to enforce severe containment measures- in an effort to curb the spread of the killer disease. The arrival of vaccines in Kenya has however brought some level of hope.

However, the ministry of health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe recently kicked off a vicious debate among kenyans when he banned continued adminstration of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine in Kenya, a decision that meant that kenyans were denied the opportunity to use privately imported vaccine.

And now, vocal Tangatanga politician Caleb Kositany, who is viewed by most kenyans as a defacto spokesperson for deputy president William Ruto, has come out to make allegations on the possible reason why the ministry of health cabinet secretary Mutahi Kagwe banned the Sputnik V vaccine recently used by DP Ruto.

In a social media message, Kositany said that the government may have thought that the second in command was behind the Importation of the Sputnik jab into Kenya.

"Someone lied to them that Ruto imported the vaccine for sell (sic)," Kositany said.

He was responding to a social media post where Ruto allied Emmanuel Talam had thrashed the Government's ban on Ruto linked vaccine, calling on the authorities to instead avail any vaccine that it prefers to kenyans.
