Kenyans online take on Isaac Ruto challenge

Trust Kenyans to come up with a hilarious view about almost anything at ll times. Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, has become a subject of a challenge in which online users are taking photos similar to his post-injury one.

Dubbed the #IsaacRutoChallenge, Kenyans on social media mimicked the governor who was after being hit by a teargas canister.

Police used teargas to disperse Chama cha Mashinani supporters and those of Jubilee Party at Silbwet Stadium on Sunday after the two sides clashed.


A statement sent by the Council of Governors through the office of communications in Bomet County said that the governor had tried to intervene by asking police officers to release youth they had arrested when things turned chaotic and the police lobbed teargas canisters that hit the governor on his left eye.

“He was attending a church service at Njerian AGC, Silibwet Township Ward, when he received text messages of complaints from youths attending a football match at Silibwet stadium. The youth complained that they had been arrested by the police while others were being harassed at the stadium,” the statement indicated.

Kenyans online have mimicked the injured face of governor Ruto by placing an adhesive bandage beside their nose.
