Deputy President William Ruto Remains Silent On This Important National Issue

When foreign affairs ministry retaliated against UK for banning Kenya, many politicians have opined on the matter. The retaliation was met positively by many Kenyans on social media. All passengers originating or transiting from UK will be forced to undergo mandatory isolation in a Government isolated facility.

Moses Kuria was among the first politicians for congratulating Kenya for that bold step. Earlier he had called on the government to impose such measures. Senator Susan Kihika also applauded the decision. Kipchumba Murkomen regretted the decision saying Kenya should instead strengthen its diplomacy.

As more Kenyans from different social and political classes continue to discuss on the issue, Deputy President William Ruto has remained largely silent concerning the matter. As a top government official and presidential hopeful, his input would have greatly impacted on the nature of this discourse.

Kenyans will have to keep guessing whether Ruto supports the decision by the government or not. In the past, he has weighed on grave issues affecting the nation. A quick look on his official Twitter Handle will show he has ignored the subject altogether.

He aggressively advocated for Win Win Formula during revenue allocation formula stalemate, he has given his opinion on constitutional amendment as well as economic plan the country should take towards recovery. It raises questions why he has been silent on UK/Kenya relations considering they could have far reaching impacts on the country.
