Good morning Kenyans.
The weekend is almost here after a crazy week in the political scene.
Deputy President William Ruto looks like a man under siege.
Ruto was back on the spotlight after the government played judge, jury, and executioner in regards to his latest ‘political’ rallies.
The DP found himself in a tight corner after it was stated that such rallies would now only be approved by the police.
The second in command was forced to cancel his rally in Nyamira after chaos erupted a week after the Murang’a drama.
This was the second ultimatum issued to Ruto in a span of two weeks.
The new rule seems to depict that the former URP man’s powers are slowly being stripped away by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
This brings up the big question, does Ruto deserve such disrespect from Uhuru?
These are the news making headlines on the Opera News App today:

Lolani Kalu Moved To Tears As Kenyans Raise More Cash on ‘Bonga na Jalas’
Revered journalist Lolani Kalu could not contain his emotions as Kenyans of goodwill continued to dig him out of his hellhole with their monetary donations.
In the last couple of days, ODM leader Raila Odinga has been on Ruto’s case.
Raila noted that the DP’s hustler narrative was misleading the youth especially with the donations being handed by the second in command.
The ‘Chungwa’ party head remarked that it doesn’t make sense that wheelbarrows are being given out to the young people yet they don’t know where they will use it.
This leaves one wondering, is Raila right with such an assessment?
