Malik Obama has thrown his weight behind Deputy President William Ruto. Malik, a half-brother to former United States President Barack Obama, declared his support for Ruto through Twitter on Saturday, going on to pour praises on the Deputy President.
He described Ruto as a tough, resilient, and brilliant politician who had stood the test of time.
"William Ruto is tough, resilient, brilliant, and most of all kind at heart. He has stood with many who have betrayed him. I stand with the Hustler nation," Malik tweeted.
Malik, who is an ardent supporter of Obama’s successor Donald Trump, further tweeted that DP Ruto is a generous man who understands his origin.
“William Ruto is generous. He understands his origins. God gave him and he is giving back. With humility and grace,” he added.
In a separate tweet, Malik, who is a dual Kenyan/US citizen, declared he will vote for Trump in the upcoming US presidential election, saying Trump is a sincere, honest, tough, and fearless leader.
“President Trump speaks from his heart. He doesn't beat around the bush. Says it like it is and is Sincere and Honest. Tough and Fearless. Not a Phony or Hypocrite. I will vote for him in 2020!” he noted.
