Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi on Wednesday, July 15 sparked outrage on social media after labelling Deputy President William Ruto the new lord of poverty.
Taking to Twitter, Mutahi called out DP Ruto for frequently sabotaging President Uhuru Kenyatta by sponsoring youths to stage demonstrations against projects launched by the Head of State
Mutahi accused Ruto of sponsoring youths who protested against the kazi mtaani project on Wednesday, July 15 along Mombasa Road in Nairobi.
The rowdy youths scattered rocks along the highway, burnt tyres, further hampering movement along the busy highway.
“Why did the hustler buy benches to be placed at jobless corners? Why not buy hospital beds from the youth, the way President Kenyatta did?
“And why sponsor youth riots on Mombasa road over fake kazi mtaani payments? Answer: lord of the hustle is the new lord of poverty,” Mutahi posed.
Mutahi’s statement sparked outrage, with most netizens sharply disagreeing with the political analyst.
