“@WilliamsRuto is tough, resilient, brilliant, and most of all kind at heart. He has stood with many who have betrayed him. I stand with the @HustlerNation,” wrote Malik on Twitter.
Malik is known for going against the grain whenever he smells opportunity to hog limelight and self-advancement.
Malik’s message elicited mixed reactions with some calling him opportunistic.
In the 2016 US poll, Malik supported Donald Trump as Barack supported Democrat’s, Hilary Clinton.
