If Uhuru is Jobless, Let Him Go & Fight Locusts- Angry Uasin Gishu Woman

  • A woman from Uasin Gishu County has gone on an angry rant against President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

    In a video that surfaced on the internet on Tuesday, January 20, the unidentified woman questioned why the president and the former PM were campaigning for the BBI report.

    "If Raila and Uhuru do not want to work for Kenyans, they should go fight locusts. We have already embraced the BBI report, why do they keep campaigning?" the woman questioned.

    "We have more problems. Students passed their exams but are still at home, the roads are impassable, our problems as Kenyans are too many. Do not joke around with Kenyans," she complained.

    The woman further warned the two against taunting Deputy President William Ruto, arguing that residents from Uasin Gishu voted for him.

    "If Ruto is a thief, then we are also thieves, yet we elected you as our president.

    "I want to publicly warn Raila. I want to remind you that Ruto is still your deputy president. There is no other DP," she concluded.

    The woman's rant follows a mega-rally that was held on Saturday, January 19, to discuss the BBI report at Bukhungu Stadium in Kakamega.

    A series of accusations were levelled against the deputy president from a host of leaders who took issue with his many forays across the country.

    COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli accused DP Ruto of being the stumbling block in the relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, who he insisted was set on becoming president in 2022.

    He also alleged that individuals like Mumias East MP Benjamin Washiali and former Sports CS Rashid Echesa were called to Sugoi to plan on attacking Mudavadi, a matter that he claimed forced him to jump to Mudavadi's defence.
