New Details Emerge On Why DP Ruto's Convoy Was Stoned While Raila Odinga Was Given A Warm Welcome

On September 5th,DP Ruto's van was stoned by thugs in Naromoru town, Kieni constituency while in his campaign.Ruto said that the enraged angry youths were bribed to attack him and his convoy at large.This humiliating act happened while speaking to residents in different parts of the Kieni constituency.

After Citizen TV aired the dramatic event in Naromoru,DP Ruto's allies launched a boycott campaign. Raila Odinga paid a visit to Kieni on September 27th, and to everyone's surprise, he received a warm welcome and didn't face any challenge from the residents of those areas.

A large number of people flocked together to greet Raila and hear from him,sparking fear in Ruto's camp, as his Mount Kenya friends had spent years earning support for Ruto in the region.

Now,Kanini Kega,Kieni MP has explained the reasons for Ruto's Stoning In Kieni While Raila was warmly welcomed.

Speaking on Inooro FM,Kega claimed that Ruto did not notify him that he was visiting his constituency and that this could be the reason for the crowd's hostility.He did, however, disassociate himself from the violence that occurred that day.

“Whenever a presidential contender comes to Kieni, they call me first to let me know. Then I make plans to make sure everything is in order. William Ruto and his entourage failed to alert me of their arrival, which could explain why his convoy was pelted. He was attempting to enter through the backdoor. Those who have linked me to violence are simply attempting to ruin my name. “I am a peace ambassador,” Kanini Kega declared.

Kega, on the other hand, stated that Raila had informed him of his coming, which is why he was welcomed so cordially. Musalia Mudavadi and Gideon Moi, he continued, had also visited Kieni, but there had been no violence since they had informed him.
