Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) MP aspirant Josephine Ndida's speech at Kenya Kwanza's Mombasa County Economic Forum was almost cut short by the crowd that demanded that she end her speech before she alleged why Ruto is being called 'a thief' by his critics.
The Changamwe Constituency MP aspirant was temporarily interrupted by the crowd after she asked Deputy President William Ruto to create a committee that can help in advising people with mental health issues.
Mrs. Josephine claimed that the mental health problem is now a common issues in the society and even if the so called 'Mama Mbogas' are given the support by Ruto's government, some of them with this problem may be unable to make rightful decisions.
"Ata mama Mboga akipatiwa hiyo pesa na ako na mawazo hiyo pesa itapotea tu (Even if Mama Mboga is given the money and she has mental health problems, that money will just be lost)," the aspirant said before the crowd started shouting, demanding that she ends her speech because of time.
Hon. Hassan Omar who was also acting as the Master of Ceremony could also be seen touching her at the back, signaling her to cut her speech short.
But, the aspirant insisted that she had one more point that she wanted to make before ending her speech.
"Kitu kimoja tu. Najua, naelewa acha niseme kitu kimoja tu (Just one more thing. I know, I understand but let me say one more thing only)," the aspirant pleaded with the shouting crowd before she to continue amid heckles from the crowd.
She then said that Deputy President William Ruto being called a thief by his opponents is only political. She said that when Ruto is called a thief, it is also his supporters who are called so. She said that Ruto has no any other name apart from being called a thief because he is a politician.
"Deputy President William Ruto, unaitwa mwizi kwa sababu hauna jina lingine la kisiasa (You are being called a thief because you have no any other name in politics)," she said, urging the residents to vote for Ruto in August.
