Following the arrest of Emukua Dikirr MP Johanna Ngeno over hate speech against President Uhuru Kenyatta and the war of words launched by Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi during a press conference against former First Lady Mama Ngina, Deputy President William Ruto has come forward to respond to the issue.
Taking to his social media account, Ruto criticized his close allies and urged them to restrain from insulting the President and women.
|”Leaders should exercise restraint and avoid insults and bad language against other Kenyans. Unsavoury words against mothers and Head of State is a NO, NO. No amount of anger justifies use of offensive insulting language. There exists decent ways to communicate however one feels.,” he wrote.

Oscar Sudi and Johanna Ngeno who are close DP Ruto allies launched a spirited attack on the head of state.
On September 6 during a thanksgiving ceremony at the home of the late Joseph Waitakei Kipsang in Trans Mara West, Mr Ng’eno is attacked President Uhuru, accusing him of mistreating DP Ruto and told him to wait for his term to end and retire peacefully just like former Presidents Daniel Moi and Mwai Kibaki.
He also said that the President should start packing ahead of his return to his Gatundu home when his term ends and that he should dissolve the government and quit if he is uncomfortable working with DP Ruto. In a press conference on Monday afternoon, his counterpart Oscar Sudi made vulgar comments about President Kenyatta’s mother, Mama Ngina.
