Speaking at a rally in Thika, Kiambu County, Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has hit back at Deputy President William Ruto for criticizing Chief Justice Martha Koome for chairing the election preparedness committee.
The Wiper leader flashbacked to the time when he and his colleagues in Nasa were championing for the independence of the commission while Ruto laughed at them further stating that it is hypocritical for Ruto to cry over the IEBC this time.
“I remember when Wetangula and I were still in Cord, we were teargassed when we were fighting for the independence of the IEBC. We were pushing for the disbandment of the commission.
“At that time, Ruto was in Ukambani saying that it was his first time to see a vice president (Kalonzo) sitting on a tarmac road. He was laughing at me. How times change, it is now his time to cry. He is crying right now but he is yet to cry more because he doesn’t stand for the truth,” Kalonzo said.
Kalonzo warned Ruto of trying to interfere with the independence of the Judiciary by criticizing the CJ. According to Kalonzo, CJ Koome is chairing the elections committee to ensure the elections are free and fair.
