Deputy President heckled in Kisumu

Deputy President William Ruto was today shouted down and could not be allowed to address the gathering as he tried to introduce President Uhuru Kenyatta to launch the Kisumu EABL plant.

The crowd chanted NASA slogan and others sang “We don’t want Ruto” as he wanted to speak before ushering the President to launch  the plant.

Despite many wearing Jubilee T-shirts, they remained firm not to allow DP Ruto to speak until he let the President address the agitated crowd.

They  quietened down and listened to the Uhuru who spoke in a conciliatory manner expressing his willingness to unify the country. He told the residents that they were free to vote for people of their choice.

The area is a NASA stronghold where the opposition flag bearer Raila Odinga enjoys fanatical support.

Meanwhile the National Super Alliance (NASA) rally led by Raila and other NASA pentagon Members Musalia Mudavadi, and Isaac Ruto was disrupted in Kabarnet grounds in Baringo County. They were heckled as they tried to address the crowd.

They were forced to cut short the rally and headed to Eldama Ravine town. Baringo is perceived to be a Jubilee Party zone where area senator Gideon Moi who is the Kanu chairman is campaigning for the re-election of President Kenyatta.
