Deputy President William Ruto isn’t a man to mess with, going by how he dealt with Mungiki leader Maina Njenga.
Maina was among a gathering of hooligans who heckled DP Ruto in one of his many rallies in Laikipia County on Tuesday.
The Mungiki leader was trying to grab the eye of the DP by telling goons to demand that he addresses the gathering.
However, in spite of the supplication, Ruto stayed firm and demanded that Maina should join United Democratic Alliance (UDA) if he wanted to address the crowd.
To put the final nail on Maina Njenga’s casket, Ruto asked Laikipia residents to decide in favor of UDA candidates from MCA to the President.
Maina Njenga is vying for the Laikipia Senatorial seat using the Independence party, KANU.
“Mtanipatia senator ambaye anajua mambo ya bottom up?
“Kwa hivyo Maina Njenga akuje UDA ama afanye nini? (Will you give me a senator who understands the bottom-up approach? Should Maina Njenga be the UDA candidate?)” Ruto said.
Maina will faceoff with Incumbent Laikipia Senator, John Kinyua, who is competing on a UDA ticket.
