The public is learning of the Deputy President’s generosity just a day after Raila Odinga’s men voiced their frustrations against President Uhuru Kenyatta. Today, the hashtag #RutoCares have been a trending topic on twitter.
A twitter handle @TeamWilliamRuto tweeted, “During this period of Covid-19, DP Ruto has been donating foodstuffs to residents of Nairobi and the outcasts. God bless our Deputy President.”
Dennis Itumbi then tweeted, “YES #Ruto Cares. As others asked what he was doing with the money he gave Churches, He activated his Church, Mosques, and Political Network to distribute food in Nairobi, Kajiado and Kiambu Counties. As of Sunday, 40, 122 families had benefited.”
On Thursday, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Leaders led by James Orengo and the Minority Whip Junet Mohamed demanded the president and the ministry of health to account for Covid-19 billions.
The Minority Whip stated, “If it was in the democracies that have matured, this government would have resigned. We would have had a general election now. If you cannot defend people from floods, and you cannot buy them masks, you don’t even deserve to be called government.”
Junet continued, “This government has not done anything, except announcing numbers every day at 3 O’clock. It cannot be business as usual and we keep quiet. This is a government that could not even bother to give its citizens mask, let alone food. We were told there will be free hand sanitizers, where are they?”
