Ruto: No Sacred Cows in Fertiliser Scandal Probe; Acid Test for Linturi, Nakhumicha as Impeachment Knocks & Inside Raila’s Grand Plan to Safeguard ODM as He Sets Sights on AU Post

Good morning,

President Wiliam Ruto has weighed in on the recent attack by Iran on Israel marking a significant stance on the escalating conflict in the Middle East.

The attack, which targeted Israeli territories, has prompted swift international condemnation, with Ruto joining the chorus of leaders expressing outrage at the aggression.

Ruto’s condemnation comes amidst mounting tensions in the Middle East, where simmering disputes have occasionally erupted into open conflict. His statement signals Kenya’s commitment to upholding principles of sovereignty, territorial integrity, and peaceful resolution of disputes.

But for Kenyans, the condemnations came as a sign of singing the tune of ‘masters’ and not that of the citizens. A section of Kenyans including former Chief Justice Willy Mutunga, Ruto speaks in his master’s voice and never in his people’s voice.

Not so long ago, Kenya received donations of billions to help bring law and order to the Carribean country, Haiti, which has been suffering under armed gangs.

For many, Kenya has been vocal in these issues because of the monetary support it receives and that it will always go with the saying “who pays the piper calls the tune”.

Do you think President Ruto was justified to be among the first African leaders to call out Iran?

Meanwhile, here are stories making headlines on Opera News today;
