Jubilee MP tells DP Ruto to stop demeaning opposition

Nakuru - A Jubilee member of Parliament has pleaded with deputy President William Ruto to stop demeaning the opposition and talking ill of them in every forum he attends.
Emurua Dikir MP, Johanna Nge'no said it is wrong for Ruto to be attacking the opposition every time he opens his mouth, saying that it jeopardises efforts of uniting the nation.
Nge'no called on Ruto to focus on telling Kenyans what Jubilee has done so far and let the opposition be.
Speaking Sunday in Kuresoi, Nge'no said that it is ironic for Ruto to continue doing things he bashes the opposition for.
"I always wonder why the DP must continue attacking the opposition everywhere he goes. Instead of telling Kenyans what the government has done, he is busy attacking CORD and its leadership," said Nge'no.

"By always attacking the opposition, the DP is no different from them because he is doing the same things he wants the opposition to stop doing," he said.
The legislator said Ruto does not have to always answer the opposition.
"It is not necessary for Ruto to be answering the opposition anytime they speak or do something. The best way is for him to keep quiet and let his lieutenants do that job. The DP should use his time to talk about more important issues instead of fighting CORD," he said.
"This habit of demeaning the opposition when all they are doing is their work will one day work against him and I pray he desist from it before its too late," said Nge'no.
