Tuesday September 24, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto’s promise to construct a public school in Nairobi's Kayole area in the wake of the tragic collapse of a two-storey building at Precious Talent School landed him in trouble yesterday residents refused to buy his crap of a promise.
Ruto stated that the government would contribute Ksh20 million to construct a public school in the area to enhance access to education.
"The Government will make available Ksh20m to construct a public school with adequate learning facilities in Kayole, Nairobi County. This will enhance access to education, foster quality learning and decongest the student population in other schools in the area," he posted on his Twitter page.
His promise wasn't taken too well by netizens, most of whom thought that his declaration was a knee-jerk reaction.
"My friend, what happened to the nine stadiums, you need prayers," Taffa weighed in.
"A disaster must take place for you to do the right thing?? Pathetic," Dennis Savatia stated.
"Before or After the Stadiums?" Nyokabi Mburu probed.
"Politicians wait for something to happen then PAP, knee-jerk reactions. Corruption and greed has, is and will always be our downfall. God help us, "Dennis Blessings commented.
Ruto made the promise after eight children from Precious Talent School lost their lives after the collapse of a two-storey building in the school.
The DP visited the injured pupils at Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) where they had been admitted and grieved with the bereaved families in a heartfelt message on his social media pages.
