Hii imeenda! Senator Ole Kina finally ‘accepts’ Ruto as president
Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has finally accepted that Dr William Ruto is the president of the Republic of Kenya.
President Ruto beat Azimio la Umoja’s party leader Raila Odinga in last year’s General Election but the vocal Senator, a die-hard follower of Mr Odinga, admits he’s been living in denial.
“I have fully accepted it! This is indeed the reality! But the person who will cry the most, in the end, is none other than @rigathi…,” Ole Kina tweeted.

The Senator is one of the few lawmakers who attempted to stop the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) outgoing chair Wafula Chebukati from announcing results of the presidential election on August 15, 2022.
Recounting the events of the fateful day, the senator alleged that he was brutally assaulted by supporters of Dr Ruto and elected MPs allied to the Kenya Kwanza camp.
The Senator has however expressed optimism that Azimio still has a chance in the 2027 General Election, if only they change their plan.
“The painful truth is this guy (Dr Ruto) sees the game four steps ahead of us. He is outsmarting us in every move and if we are to win the next election we must change our plan,” he tweeted.
His acceptance of President Ruto notwithstanding, Ole Kina remains a harsh critic of the head of state. He recently criticized the importation of genetically modified foods saying they were witchcraft.
“If you see everyone who has taken GMOs they are either swollen, others have added weight excessively, and look like pigs. It is wise we remain the way we are as we do not have funds to treat cancer,” he said in a recent interview.
