Leila first thrust into the limelight after going ham on Deputy president William Ruto.
In a no holds barred Facebook post, Laila told off Ruto after he was allegedly barred from entering Moi’s Kabarak home.
“Your Excellency D.P, as a well respected leader call a truce between you and Hon.Senator Gideon K.Moi… Seek out a different strategy and approach and get rid of sycophancy and people who are capitalising on your rivalry… “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
