Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho has hit deputy president William Samoei Ruto where it hurts most just a few days to the general elections.
The deputy president on Thursday complained that he was not allowed to access the Tononoka grounds in Mombasa where they had planned to hold their Kenya Kwanza last rally at the Coastal region.
According to Ruto, the county government under the leadership of governor Joho denied them access because president Uhuru Kenyatta was visiting the region almost the same time.
“They don’t want us to use the Tononoka grounds in Mombasa. When we ask for reasons, we are told that president Uhuru will be in Mombasa.” Complained Ruto.
However, Ruto’s predicaments are a replica of what transpired at the Jacaranda stadium where the National Super Alliance (NASA) was denied access to the facility.
NASA was to hold a memorial prayer rally for victims of police brutality in Jacaranda Grounds, Embakasi East constituency, the same time President-elect Uhuru and his deputy William Ruto were to be sworn in at the Kasarani Stadium.
By then, the police declared jacaranda a no go zone for the opposition party and the embattled former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko through the deep state filled the area with raw sewage just to block Raila Odinga and his entourage from conducting their function.
By then, William Ruto never uttered a word to condemn the injustices that were being meted on their opponents.
Consequently, after Ruto complained on Thursday about being locked out of the Tononoka stadium, Kenyans rushed to his wall to remind him that he bred these injustices in 2017 as the second in command and they are now consuming him now.
“You supported injustices in 2017 and 2013. You guys even blocked the opposition from holding their rallies in those stadiums. Now you are here crying for us yet you were at the fore-front of perpetuating the same. For your information, we Kenyans have no problem if you politicians are consumed by the laws you made in the past.” Said one kamau Mbugua.
