You must re­spect DP Ruto, woman rep tells Nanok

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Re­spect Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto, Turkana woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Joyce Emanikor has told Gov­er­nor Josphat Nanok. She was re­act­ing to Nanok’s crit­i­cism of Ruto, say­ing he comes uninvited, med­dles and in­cites res­i­dents.

Emanikor said the gov­er­nor was aware of the visit but falsely claimed he was not in­formed. The peo­ple of Turkana and West Pokot knew that both the Pres­i­dent his deputy were vis­it­ing Turkana and West Pokot and that is why they came out in big num­bers to re­ceive them, she said.

“The gov­er­nor mo­bilised ODM MCAs to at­tend the launch of road con­struc­tion in Kainuk. Some of his MCAs were on a mis­sion to dis­rupt the event but failed,” Emanikor said.

She said Ruto did not in­cite res­i­dents against the county govern­ment. “The DP only asked if the peo­ple knew where county funds go and the ac­cla­ma­tion was a big no.”
