Our undercover sleuths have revealed damning allegations where Ruto was heard bragging that Luos are cheap and useless people that he will buy with his millions like he did in Langata Constituency. “Luos are cheap and useless people who can be bought with 200 bob, tea and a photo op” said Ruto.
In the run up to the last general election, Ruto in a well-choreographed scheme paid so many Luos in Kibra to transfer their votes from Kibra to the neighboring Langata in a move that saw Hon Korir win against the ODM candidate. As was the case in Langata, Ruto sponsored a Wiper candidate Judith Sijeny in order to give the Jubilee candidate undue advantage. This saw Korir win with a margin of about 3,000 votes. The same strategy is again being repeated in Kibra where other NASA Coalition parties like ANC party leader was paid 10 million in order to field Owalo.
Following the hostility in Kibra, Ruto has since settled for campaigns outside the constituency where huge delegations are ferried to his residence in Karen or his Weston Hotel where delegates are offered food, drinks and money in order to entice them to vote for Mariga.
To members of Luo community, you are slowly becoming an easy target and a laughing stock. Ruto is taking advantages of the social stratification of the slum dwellers to bribe them little wonder he was bragging that he will teach Raila Odinga a political lesson.
Eat Ruto’s ill-gotten wealth if you must but do not sell your soul to him because he will only use that against the entire community.
