A Tanzanian translator is interrupted by president William Ruto during his speech.

Dr. William Samoei Ruto, the president of Kenya, recently paid a visit to Tanzania, one of our neighbors. H.E. William Samoei Ruto had been invited for government talks by Tanzanian President Samia Hassan. Samia Hassan thanked the president and government leaders in her remarks. She expressed her gratitude to Kenyans once more for holding a peaceful election. This is supported by a video that Dr. William Ruto posted on Twitter.

In an article uploaded by Tuko News, H.E. Ruto reportedly shut down a Tanzanian speech translator, which sparked outrage. According to the article, Ruto pleaded with the media representatives in attendance that he would give his remarks in English. A Tanzanian reporter tried to assist, but the president was not having it. In order to halt the translation, Ruto was forced to remark, "Ntarudia baadaye we wachana tu."

While some online users are praising the president, others are criticizing the action. Some of the comments are listed below.
