Embakasi East MP Paul Ongili commonly known as Babu Owino has torn into President William Ruto’s State of the Nation address.
On Wednesday, January 4, President William Ruto had a joint media interview where he got to answer some hard-hitting questions.
In a statement on Facebook on Thursday, January 5, the ODM lawmaker termed President Ruto’s State of the Nation Address as gibberish adding that it was full of lies.
“One thing that William Ruto is consistent in, is telling lies. Mgala muue na haki umpe. This interview on the state of the Nation is gibberish,” he said in a Tweet.
The vocal legislator further challenged the Head of State to tell Kenyans how he will address the current high cost of living and how he will create employment opportunities for the majority of the Kenyans.
“Tell us how you will deal with the high cost of living and how youth, men, and women will get jobs. Otherwise from 0 to 10 you score (-2),” Owino said.
He said this following the Head of State’s joint media interview in which the president issued contradicting statements on the former Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) boss George Kinoti.
Ruto, in his joint media interview, confessed that he showed Kinoti the door because of the rogue character of the institutions he headed.
The president furthers his decision to fire Kinoti due to the fact that the former DCI boss used the criminal justice system to settle political scores by conjuring court cases against rivals.
“30 bodies in River Yala, 17 bodies in Garissa…there was a container here in Nairobi area where people were being slaughtered in a police station. How did we end up here? What kind of rogue institution…and that’s why I fired that Kinoti man because it is not right,” the president said.
His revelations appear to contradict his earlier announcements that Kinoti had voluntarily resigned.
“This afternoon I received the resignation of DCI director George Kinoti. I have transmitted the same to the National Police Service to proceed with advertising that position,” Ruto said.
