Ruto betrays Kalenjins – Elders call on DP to stop viewing them as voting machines

Kalenjin elders have blasted deputy president William Ruto accusing him of viewing the community as voting machines. According to them, the DP is taking advantage of them, yet he does not develop their areas.

“Ruto should stop treating us as voting machines, and when it comes to the development, he sidelines us.”

They further listed some of the scandals that have been linked to DP Ruto. The elders noted how the DP had graft charges regarding the Kimwarer dam. They also accused him of conspiring with his friends to short gain the Kalenjin community.

“Like in Kimwarer dam, he and his allies short gained us.”

Stop subdividing the Kalenjin community.

The elders also urged Ruto to stop subdividing and defiling the Kalenjin cultural leadership and leadership procedures. They further accused him of using paid Talai leaders to install him as a community leader.

“We would also like to tell him to stop defiling our cultural leadership and leadership procedures with his recent controversial installation as a Kalenjin leader by some paid Talai elders.”

These fresh accusations come weeks after Talai elders blessed and installed DP Ruto as a traditional Kalenjin leader. However, his installation has faced a lot of opposition, with many claiming that he paid the leaders. Some Talai elders further claimed that young men did the installation contrary to Kalenjin tradition. This makes the whole process illegal.

“We are not against the coronation that was done at Kapsisiywa, but we are against the way in which it was executed, for instance, there is not use of honey when the leader is dressed with the Sambut,” Stephen Sugut, one of the elders, once said.

This discussion rocked social media with Kenyans taking the debate to Twitter. The topic trended for the better part of the day under the hashtag #RutoBetrayskalenjins. You can follow the Twitter Trend here.
