Kenyans turn against Ruto as Jirongo’s interview sparks netizens

Some Kenyans on Twitter (KoT) turned against Deputy President William Ruto under the hashtag #SomeoneTellAbsalom.

(Netizens have nicknamed the DP as Absalom)

One netizen uploaded a video of Jirongo’s interview on KTN News, which happened six months ago. This video opened a can of worms as other netizens started reposting the video and making it go viral. From the video, Jirongo accuses Ruto of being a murderer.

Jirongo further accused Ruto of targeting to break up political alliances. According to him, the DP does not recognize anybody. He also alleged that the DP usually partners with who he feels will help him and then abandons the person. Jirongo mentioned the current Uhuru and Ruto wrangles claiming that Ruto had already orchestrated the plan.

Another netizen also uploaded a video of a collection of Ruto’s previous interviews. The tweep further went ahead to accuse the second in command of being corrupt. Other tweeps joined in the discussion. According to some netizens, Ruto is a corrupt leader. They further went on to list some of the corruption scandals that have been linked to the DP.

One netizen mentioned Ruto’s latest sentiments when he urged his supporters not to fear the deep state. According to the netizen, the DP is psychologically preparing his followers in case he loses the elections.

Another tweep claimed that DP Ruto always thrives through division and rule.

One tweep was quick to remind other netizens that they should not use tribes as part of politics.
