DP Ruto excites Twitter with ‘Nasa hao’ rant

Deputy President William Ruto has excited social media with a hilarious jibe against Chief Justice David Maraga.

Mr Ruto claimed the CJ had taken sides after his terse statement on Tuesday that told off politicians who have been targeting the Supreme Court judges and staff after the ruling that annulled the August 8 presidential election results.

“The JSC would like to state that we unreservedly condemn these mindless acts of aggression against the Judiciary and reiterate that if anything happens to the individual judges, staff or their families, those making inciting statements will be personally held responsible,” said Justice Maraga.

“If leaders are tired of having a strong and independent judiciary, they should call a referendum and abolish it altogether. Before that happens, the Judiciary will continue to discharge its mandate in accordance with the Constitution and individual oaths of office”

But an angry DP took to Twitter where he accused the CJ of siding with Jubilee opponents, Nasa.

A screenshot of the tweet, which has been retweeted more than 3,000 time, was shared widely on social media.

But Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua, who lost to Jubilee’s Anne Waiguru in the Kirinyaga gubernatorial contest in August, immediately told off the DP.

The response sparked off a heated debate with other leaders.
