MCA strips naked over offensive tweet by DP Ruto's imposter

25 June 2015, 09:24 Arap Yego

Siaya - A ward representative from Siaya County Wednesday stripped naked at a press conference to protest an alleged disparaging tweet made by an account purported to be that of Deputy William Ruto.

Shocked journalists watched in disbelief as Fred Ouda, the Gem Member of the County Assembly (MCA) removed all his clothes to protest against the tweet which according to him offended his party leader, Raila Odinga and the people of Kibera.

The tweet posted Wednesday by @WilliamRutoh read: "Let them go back to the flying toilets. You cannot help a fly that wants to follow a corpse to the grave.#Kibera .”

Ouda said the remarks attributed to the Deputy President were an insult to the poor people not only in Kibera but the whole country as well, who are voters just like any other person.

“Ruto clearly insulted the residents of Kibera slums who some are my relatives. This was also a clear attack against our Cord leader Raila Odinga,” the MCA told journalists and asked the DP to apologise in two weeks time.

It however emerged later that the account @WilliamRutoh does not belong to the Deputy President.

Ruto’s authentic twitter handle is @WilliamSRuto.

“The offensive tweet was from a fake account operated by an imposter,” said Deputy President's spokesman, David Mugonyi.
