Raila, Ruto meet at Matiba’s home and Kenyans are upset – PHOTOS

Deputy President William Ruto and Nasa leader Raila Odinga met publicly for the first time on Tuesday since the controversial presidential elections.

The two met at the late Kenneth Matiba’s home in Limuru to condole with the family of the multi-party democracy crusader who died Sunday evening at Karen Hospital.

Also present was Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu and Nasa strategist Dr David Ndii.

Mr Odinga and Mr Ruto exchange pleasantries briefly before proceeding to meet the Matiba family.


However, their meeting did not go down well with Kenyans who roasted them for not doing enough, in their respective capacities, to make Matiba’s life comfortable.

Kenyans urged DP Ruto to expedite the payment of Sh925 million awarded to Matiba by a court for the imprisonment and torture meted by president Daniel Moi’s regime.

Here is a sample of the angry responses.
