DP William Ruto William Ruto, for another time, kicked the media out of his event that was going down at Njoro in Nakuru county.

Ruto met with grassroots leaders, opinion-shapers and professionals from Njoro and Molo to discuss their issues and priorities.

As he was giving his speech, DP Ruto noticed the presence of journalists who were covering the event. He paused  to first deal with the matter while accusing them of having lots of propaganda.

“These media houses, why do we have media houses here? Who brought them [here] you people should leave first we want to talk about important things. I don’t want these people here, they have lots of propaganda,” Ruto said.

Before that however, Ruto was recounting how he came to support president Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2013 general elections and also touched on the post elections violence.

He was among those who wanted to vie in the 2013 general elections but established that he would come number 3 after Kenyatta and Raila Odinga that’s why he opted to join forces with Kenyatta

“…but I asked myself, the way Kenyan politics is after 2007 and the big problem is that when politics get there Rift Valley people are the most affected. We sat down with my friend Uhuru Kenyatta and agreed. I told him that I was ready  and  had the opportunity,” he said before kicking the media out.

A source however  told journalists that Ruto chased away journalists because he was not comfortable talking about some unity issues in their presence.

“The DP was uncomfortable talking about some issues about unity and why residents of Njoro and Molo must maintain peace ahead of the elections. That is why he decided to keep the media away,” the source revealed.

The media was out of the event for about three hours.
