Kenyans React After Journalists Candidly "Disorient" Ruto on Live Press

The long awaited speech by the deputy president Dr William Ruto was finally delivered at his Karen home! After a long discussion with more than 150 leaders allied to the Tangatanga wing, the deputy president finally issued their stand as far as the building bridges initiative (BBI) is concerned.

In a nutshell, the deputy president still held to his consensus shenanigans, one that political commentators have termed as "oppo-supporting" the document. The deputy president noted with reservation some of the key articles that had been improved to favour all kenyans. He however noted other sections that kenyans were against, the reason for his call for consensus.

What captured the eyes of many in the presser was the hit hat reactions between the journalists and the deputy president during the time he allowed them to ask questions. Despite the many questions that were asked, the journalists seemed to revolve around one question.

"Suppose the other team says the window for consensus is closed, what will your team do. Will you vote for No or Yes?" different media personalities asked leading to reactions from Ruto's minions who asked him to end the presser.

Kenyans led by ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna blasted the Ruto's camp for wanting escape the fiery questions from the journalists. Sifuna however sympathized with the DP saying he would better end the presser than the public humiliation by journalists.

"Ruto should actually listen to the advise of the MPs and end this presser already... Kina Duncan Khaemba and Mureithi will finish him." he tweeted.
