Deputy President William Ruto has taken a swipe at opposition leader Raila Odinga over the chaos that took place in Nairobi on Friday upon his return to the country from the United States.
Ruto says that the former Prime Minister is to blame for the chaos, destruction, bloodshed and death occasioned by his arrival into the country.
In a statement on his Twitter handle, the Deputy President described the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader as the lord of poverty and master of violence.
“The lord of POVERTY & master of VIOLENCE came with his signature chaos, destruction, bloodshed and death. Barbaric, undemocratic & primitive,” Ruto posted on his Twitter handle.
However, in a statement on Friday, the opposition leader Raila Odinga said Jubilee and President Uhuru should be held responsible for the unfortunate Friday incidents.
“NASA strongly condemns what has happened today, that is becoming a pattern in our country. We hold President Uhuru Kenyatta and his illegitimate regime responsible for this absurd and unfortunate turn of events. The President has the blood of innocent Kenyans on his hands,” Raila stressed.
He added: “Today’s use of maximum brute force confirms our fears that a dictatorship is taking root in Kenya. As citizens, we have a duty and responsibility to stop it now before the roots go too deep."
