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.
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 Ngunyi (@MutahiNgunyi) July 15, 2020
Mutahi’s statement sparked outrage, with most netizens sharply disagreeing with the political analyst.

Did You just say the president bought? Like seriously? It's in public knowledge that he has ordered the ministry of health to buy them. Hiyo ni pesa ya uma my fren, si ya mama yako.— Mely K. (@Tiondo1) July 15, 2020
What you simply saying is that,the art work by the guys Ruto supported is irrelevant because they made benches and not hospital beds..— Amos the 3rd (@AmoHsToo) July 15, 2020

And was it a must for the so called Uhuru to buy beds from only his kinsmen and ignore the Luo guy who first came up with his art work?— Ochieng .H .Nyabul (@Nyabul4) July 15, 2020
Ama our time to eat and get government tenders ndio haijafika?
Ruto is so plastic. He is also the person inciting gikomba traders not to move out from the roads set for constructing. Reason? To set them against Uhuru. Evil!! Evil!!— BAKIRLASIM (@bakirlasim) July 15, 2020
