"Stop Attacking Ruto" Drama as Bitter UDA MP Grabs a Mic From a Muslim Sheikh in Kilifi

In Kilifi county, a Muslim Sheikh got into a confrontation with William Ruto's government after he was invited to lead prayers at a ceremony held to celebrate the victory of Governor Gideon Mung'aro.

Sheikh Hassan said that the president had been discriminating against Muslims in his appointments and operations. He also referred to an incident in which the head of state had invited Christians to attend a prayer service at the State House.

Sheikh Hassan noted that the State House is for everyone. However, before he could finish his sentiments, Owen Baya, the National Assembly's deputy majority leader, rushed on stage and grabbed the religious leader's microphone.

A visibly shaken UDA lawmaker then ordered the Sheikh to sit down. He then accused him of trying to divide Christians and Muslims by attacking the president. He also said that the Sheikh should stop targeting the leader with the intention of inciting divisions between Christians and Muslims.

Baya continued to insist that the Sheikh should go and preach against what he referred to as the harsh religious stands held in the coastal city of Mombasa. Sheikh Hassan then proceeded to shout. He was reportedly shouting "ukweli huuma," which literally means "truth hurts."
