Comedian Jalang’o and gospel artist Rufftone got involved in a heated argument during an interview at NTV.

This is after Jalang’o criticized Deputy President William Ruto’s UDA campaign approach of  using wheelbarrows and the bottom-up economic model saying that it does not concur with participatory leadership.

“That is where we come in with what we call participatory leadership where you actually go to people and ask what do you people need before you show up with things that they don’t really need so there is a lot of participatory that is needed even down in counties in the devolved units,” Jalang’o said.

“Yes and I tend to differ….” Rufftone tried to air his point however Jalang’o  proceeded claiming that the bottom-up economic model  was all about giving people wheelbarrows.

The host, James Smart, had to intervene for the interview to go on calmly but the guests  had to prove their points at all costs.

“No, bottom up is about wheelbarrows and empowering people and making sure a graduate is given a…They have started even justifying the wheelbarrow that the wheelbarrow is just a symbol but that is what you are giving people in every campaign. You see a whole lorry with wheelbarrows and people receive it, without asking you this, that you are taking this wheelbarrow, what other skills do you have. You have already set somebody to a point that  they believe that wheelbarrows will change their lives,” Jalango argued.

“We’ve also seen from their side (ODM) when they are going to places people are being given free oranges and manyundos,” Rufftone chipped in.

“Stop lying, orange and nyundo really, you’ve gotten there?” Jalang’o said in a midst of laughter.

“Am the one on the floor, let me finish, James Smart, when you are talking about wheelbarrow that’s symbolic. It is a symbol of resonating with the people on the ground it means we have come to the common mwananchi,” Rufftone stated but before he could finish Jalang’o was pressing to ask him a question.

Both Jalang’o and Rufftone are eyeing political seats under ODM and UDA tickets respectively.

Jalang’o will be contesting for the Lang’ata parliamentary seat while Rufftone is eyeing the Nairobi senatorial seat
