Friday August 23, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto yesterday reunited with his most trusted ally and projected Central Kenya pointman, Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
In recent weeks, Governor Waititu has been struggling to clear his name over corruption allegations, with the court barring him from accessing his office.
His deputy, Dr. James Nyoro, pronounced that he had taken over the county until Governor Waititu is cleared over Sh588 million controversial tendering process.
And at parliament during the commemoration of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta, Dr. Ruto is seen in a viral video, mocking Waititu over his necktie and his past record of throwing stones to opponents.
"Hapo zamani hukuwa unavaa tai. Tupa mawe, Tupa mawe," Dr Ruto is heard telling him. (You never used to put on a necktie. Just throw stones, throw stones).
During his time as a councillor and Embakasi MP, Waititu was synonymous with throwing stones at the police when recovering grabbed lands.
In the video, Waititu is also heard blaming Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i and nominated MP Maina Kamanda for his recent predicaments.
"Wale watu wananilemea ni huyu (while pointing at Kamanda) na Matiang'i. Kwa sababu Matiang'i na Nyoro walienda shule pamoja na nyinyi. Lakini mimi ni mtu wa mungu (The people who have been bothering me is Kamanda and Matiang'i. Matiang'i and Nyoro went to the same school and have a history)," Waititu was heard saying.
