Ruto’s woes continue to come from even the most unexpected realms of power.
Indeed, the DP came under a barrage of criticism from the party’s lawmakers, who claimed there is a deliberate attempt by the government to hide the truth from Kenyans on the full extent of the hunger situation.
Led by National Assembly Minority leader, John Mbadi (Suba South) the lawmakers also took issue with a decision to sack chiefs who raised the death alarm in their regions, arguing that the administrators ‘were only doing their work.
“We are particularly appalled by the recent denials and attempts by the deputy President to con lying to Kenyans that everything is fine and there is no cause for alarm.
We are not buying this. By saying that news that people have died is ‘fake’ news, yet government officials on the ground are confirming the same as true is very careless, irresponsible and insensitive,” the MPs aid in a statement read by Junet Mohammed (Suna East).
