Bomet County: KANU Politician Bashed For Referring To Dp Ruto As 'Stupid'

Bomet Kenya African National Union (KANU) politician Nick Salat is now in trouble moments after terming deputy president Dr William Ruto's as 'stupid' following the latter's Live radio interview.

This follows after Kenyans, particularly Bomet residents hit out at the the Baringo senator Gideon Moi's closest ally for demeaning and disrespecting the second in command by attempting to pick an online fight with him (William Ruto).

Salat was reacting to Dr Ruto's sentiments while appearing on Citizen Radio Live interview where he chastised KANU politicians for planning his heckling by motorbike riders over money raised through a fundraiser which reportedly got lost.

In his official Facebook page, the politician took a swipe at the deputy president for falsely levelling the accusation of financing chaos against him. He referred to the second in command's assertions as 'barbaric' and 'stupid'.

"I am told William Ruto was discussing me today at at Jalang'o TV. Saying that I organised Bomet County demonstrations is not only barbaric but also stupid of you," Salat told Dr Ruto.

However, he defended the boda boda riders for staging demonstrations. He argued that their move was justified because they were agitating for their rightful share of funds.

Salat cited other areas across the country where, according to him, motorbike riders had also demonstrated days after Dr Ruto presided over fundraisers on aid of their Saccos. He noted that not only the motorbike riders of Bomet demonstrated but also those in Teso in Busia and Tigania in Meru.

Nonetheless, his claims did not auger well with Kenyans and Bomet locals on social media who ganged up against the politician for using Dr Ruto's name to gain cheap political milleage. Here are some of their reactions;

This comes after the motorbike riders at Ndanai trading centre in Bomet staged demonstrations over funds raised by the Dr Ruto that were allegedly taken back by the DP.

Nevertheless, Sotik MP Dominic Kosgei disbursed the Ksh. 4.1 million funds to the Ndanai Sacco. He averred that the delayed release of funds was caused by logistical issues.
