Ruto’s dishes Twitter tackle to Tuju for new role in Raila’s kitchen cabinet

Deputy President William Ruto on Sunday seemed surprised by Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju’s new role as a chief strategist in Raila Odinga’s inner circle.

“So our democracy is so liberal that the SG of the ruling party has become the chief strategist of the opposition!! Maajabu,” Ruto tweeted.

His comment was in response to Sunday Nation‘s headline story titled ‘Tuju’s new role in Raila Kitchen Cabinet’.

Tuju has lately been touring Nyanza and has been receiving warm reception compared to last year when he was heckled during a tour in the same region after opposing Mr Odinga’s presidential bid.

Kenyans on Twitter were not left out as they added their voice on the matter.

“Itumbi we know your handwriting,” added Kipchumba.

“Dear my good friend Deputy President William Ruto. Jubilee went into political bankruptcy on the 9th of March 2018. The nature and configuration of Kenya’s politics forced us into Article 11 Bankruptcy. Raphael Tuju is only a Receiver-Manager. Don’t attack the messenger please,” said Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

“So it was a swap deal, Aisha Jumwa to DP Ruto then Tuju To Raila. No one told me this. Transfer window still on,” commented Rodger Shabbs.

Raymond Kirundi‏ tweeted; “There’s no ruling party in Kenya. Call it by its real name,a convenient convergence of a few to leach on the many. Parties here are quintessential offshoots of KANU with similar intrigues, short-sightedness, controlled madness, backstabbing,larceny & lies. Democrazy.”

“Even more so, our democracy is liberal that the ruling party is so concerned with the affairs of the opposition! Maajabu ya mwaka haya!,” commented MSC Oluth Sigor‏

Mleftie posted; “I never thought i would see this Day.”

The King of African memes‏ said; “But @HonJumwa is your campaign manager and she is @TheODMparty member.”

“Which is the Ruling party? Tangatanga or Kieleweke wing of Jubilee?” asked Korongo Allan‏

Alvins‏ advised the DP; “ You are free to seek legal redress in the court of law. Our courts are competent enough to deal with such matters.”

“It’s his democratic right to support opposition just like you said about Aisha Jumwa supporting you . How do you forget too fast!!!”Posted Eric Magoma.
