Ruto Issues Stern Warning to Uhuru's CSs

  • Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday, December 1, warned leaders against ridiculing Kenyans.

    Speaking during a Church service at the African Inland Church (A.I.C), the Deputy President specifically warned those who had been appointed to various positions by the Jubilee government.

    "The big offices that you have were given to you by the Kenyan citizens and that means you should not look down on them be it boda boda riders or those who sell vegetables because the people you ridicule are the ones who put you in office," he stated.

    He added that those awarded jobs by the jubilee government should be humble when addressing the masses.

    "Do not tell the Kenyan citizens that you have been sent by the president and talk to them in contempt," the DP warned. 

    On Friday, November 29, while speaking at a fundraiser in Kirinyaga county Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, stated that he only takes orders from President Uhuru Kenyatta.

    "I want to inform politicians who claim that Kibicho is out to frustrate them that the two of us are public servants and we work for everyone. That's our mandate as directed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

    "If you want to fight, face off against your fellow politicians. You can fight Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho who will beat you up. However, instead of facing them, you end up picking fights with us," Matiang'i conveyed.

    Matiang'i went on to claim that a certain politician approached him in Mombasa and informed him that he did not like Kibicho. 

    "The PS and I are like two sides of a coin. If you pick a war with him, then you have a problem with me. I am not afraid to say this in public. We shall continue working," Matiang'i continued.
