Rowdy youth disrupt Ruto thanksgiving rally

06 April 2016, 22:41

Nairobi - A thanksgiving and prayer meeting for DP William Ruto and journalist Joshua Sang aborted on Wednesday after chaos erupted.

According to The Star, Hundreds of Kapsabet town residents had converged at Kipchoge Keino Stadium for the midday prayers but drunk youths stormed in and stopped the proceedings.

The youths, some carrying twigs, claimed they were not involved in the planning of the meeting. They said the county government hurriedly organised it to celebrate the ICC verdict.

Governor Cleophas Lagat, woman representative Zipporah Kering, assembly speaker Edwin Cheluget and a number of MCAs were present.

As the chaos erupted, the youths grabbed each other by the neck and threatening to pull down tents that had been erected for the prayers.

The Daily Nation reported that the DP was delighted to be released by the ICC.

Mr Ruto was with Mr Sang and other leaders in his Karen office and was seen hugging and shaking hands with those present after the ruling was delivered.

The smiling deputy president was seen answering phone calls but did not address the media.

His wife, Rachel Ruto, was also at the Karen office and was mobbed and hugged by women when the news of termination of the case against her husband was made.
