In Summary
  • Deputy President, William Ruto doesn't approve Oscar Sudi's and Johanna Ng'eno's attack on Mama Ngina
  • William Ruto has advised against personal insults and offensive language
  • This is the first reaction of the Deputy President after Johanna Ng'eno's arrest
  • William Ruto doesn't seem to support either Oscar Sudi or Johanna Ng'eno. He hasn't talked about the latter's arrest but subliminally addressed the former's social media arrest

The Deputy President, William Samoei Ruto has come forward to publicly stand behind the government’s arrest of Emurua Dikirr MP Johanna Ng’eno.

In what appeared to be a tweet directed at Oscar Sudi, Ruto said that making unsavory remarks against Uhuru Kenyatta and his mother Mama Ngina was crossing the red line.

“Leaders should exercise restraint and avoid insults and bad language against other Kenyans. Unsavoury words against mothers and Head of State is a NO, NO.” William Ruto’s tweet read in part. “No amount of anger justifies use of offensive insulting language. There exists decent ways to communicate however one feels.”

“Uhuru should work with the Deputy President and if you do not want to do so, go home, Kenya does not belong to Uhuru Kenyatta…Kenya belongs to the people, this is not a country you can rule the way you want, and if you want to jail us, so be it,” Johanna Ng’eno said.

Ng’eno also attacked CS Tobiko and Rift Valley Regional Coordinator George Natembeya for the skirmishes witnessed in Narok South.

“If there is a person who has incited people of Narok South to fight is George Natembeya who is the Right Valley Regional Commissioner,” he said.

Defiant MP who spoke ill about the President, Uhuru Kenyatta, his brother, Muhoho and mother, Ngina Kenyatta had something to say on Facebook prior to his arrest.

“They are coming for me. I am ready for them. If this arrest will free our country and people from both physical and psychological torture, then nothing will be more redemptive,” Ng’eno wrote on Facebook moments before his arrest.

The MP has been booked at Emurua Dikirr Police station to record a statement.

Oscar Sudi also took to social media to speak against the President after the arrest of Johanna Ng’eno throwing insults at Mama Ngina, President Uhuru Kenyatta and his brother, Muhoho Kenyatta.

“I want to categorically tell Uhuru that we do not have any debt for you but your contempt for the Kalenjins and Ruto is worrying…I want to tell you that this country is for all of us.

This country is not Mama Ngina’s, Muhoho’s or yours.” Sudi said on the arrest of Nge’no.
