Friday, February 4, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto has said President Uhuru Kenyatta and his men are the forces behind the controversial election bill that seeks to ban the live streaming of Presidential election results.
Though the bill was introduced in Parliament by National Assembly Majority leader, Amos Kimunya, the government through Jubilee Party Secretary-General, Raphael Tuju, has distanced itself from the bill that was opposed by major political players including Orange Democratic Movement (ODM).
DP Ruto, who has publicly opposed the bill, told Taita Taveta residents on Friday that the bill was sponsored by the government and wondered why they are denying the obvious.
The second in command said the government is sponsoring the bill after realising their ‘Kitendawili project’ will lose the August 9th election.
“How come they are now running away from the Bill? The dark forces, the evil forces who are driving the Kitendawili project are the same people who made this law that everybody is running away from. Hii ni ukora,” Ruto, who has severally claimed that Raila Odinga is a state project said.
