Ruto explained to a tense gathering in Nyamonyo, Kisii county, that the cause of his rage was the nation’s dire economic state, which was responsible for the high cost of living.
He said that his rivals were unaware of the dire situation the nation was in, with Kenyans bearing the brunt of it all.
“My detractors are alleging that I have an anger problem, but who can laugh with the current economic situation in the country? We are not happy. There are Kenyans who sleep hungry because of the high cost of living. We are angry because things are not okay.”
“Those who are pleased with the current situation are ones who are not aware of the costly expenses of basic commodities. To my competitors, let us talk about issues that are affecting Kenyans on a day-to-day basis,” he stated.
However, the DP chose not to reply to the attack on a young fan during the Vihiga county—a video that was shared on social media platforms throughout the entirety of Wednesday, July 13 afternoon.
At the rally, Ruto chastised a supporter for upsetting the peace while he was speaking to the gathering.
“Let us have respect. If anyone has been sent here to cause chaos at our meeting, reveal yourself early or just leave. Sloya will not leave but will address the meeting later. Young man, do not answer me. On what basis would you answer me? Do not bring trouble here and if you want, then leave but respect our gathering,” he lamented.
