Lawyer Makau Mutua has claimed Deputy President William Ruto is a “coward” who cannot stand up and defend his allies at their time of need.
The US-based professor wondered why the DP was silent despite his lieutenants being under siege from all corners.
In a tweet on Wednesday, May 13, Mutua said no general abandons his fighters no matter the situation.
“I am flabbergasted William Ruto foot soldiers like Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika are being picked off one by one while he cowers under the bed in Karen. The man from Sugoi should stand up and defend his men and women. No general abandons his fighters,” he wrote.
Makau Mutua’s remarks came after Murkomen was replaced with KANU’s West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio as majority leader in the Senate as Murang’ a Senator Irungu Kang’ata took Kihika’s place as majority whip.
Ruto has been silent of late following his alleged fallout with President Uhuru Kenyatta nearly two years to the end of their second term.
