Deputy President William Ruto expressed displeasure at the chaos that characterised the Thursday, November 7, Kibra Constituency mini-poll.
In yet another post on his Twitter account on Saturday, Ruto took his criticism of ODM leader Raila Odinga and his party a notch higher from his morning rant by demanding a public apology for the violence meted on Jubilee leaders allied to his camp.
“As Kenyans, we demand that Tinga/his party unconditionally, unequivocally and publicly renounce the culture of violence, chaos, terror and gangsterism their signature modus operandi as witnessed in Kibra and unreservedly apologise to victims past and present for their hurt and loss.” read the Dp’s tweet.
In the earlier Saturday morning outburst, DP Ruto took to Twitter to mock the former prime minister for what he described as depending on violence to push his political agendas.
“The only strategy and structure Tinga's party (ODM) had which largely succeeded was, violence, chaos, mayhem and terror meted out by organized baba's militia the same instruments used by terrorist organizations including outlawed groups. How sad they have learned nothing from handshake!” read the tweet.
The animosity between Ruto and the former premier that had simmered down in the aftermath of 'the handshake', seemingly escalated after the Kibra polls.
Kimilili MP Didmus Barasa was on Thursday, November 7, 2019, clobbered by goons at DC Grounds in Kibra Constituency on the by-election day.
The MP, who was calmly speaking to his Dagoretti North counterpart Simba Arati, had just arrived at the grounds when the incident occurred.
On the same day, former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale was also pelted with stones by Kibra residents forcing him to arm himself with the projectiles in photos that have since gone viral.
