Tuesday November 27, 2018 - Deputy President William Ruto has used derogatory words to describe MPs who are opposed to the Two Third Gender Bill that goes to a vote in Parliament on Wednesday.
Speaking in Nyandarua County on Monday, Ruto differed with a section of politicians from the Mount Kenya region opposed to the Bill.
First to oppose the Bill was Ndaragwa MP, Jeremiah Kioni, who said they are opposed to any constitutional change to create more positions for any leaders.
But in a quick rejoinder, Ruto said any man opposed to the implementation of the third gender rule must be a homosexual.
“If you have a mother, a girlfriend, a wife and a daughter, why oppose the three gender rule?”
“This is a government policy.”
“No sane man comes out openly opposing or fighting women.”
“Why do men want to compete with women? Those opposed to the law must be homosexuals,” Ruto said.
Many MPs from Central Kenya are opposed to the bill and it is not clear whether they will be happy with Ruto’s choice of words.
