Politicians who were keen on being seen close to the deputy president were disappointed when the no-nonsense personal assistant cut short their excitement.
In a video seen by Kivumbi. co. ke, Farouk is seen physically blocking politicians who were running to the podium to join Ruto who had been invited by the ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi to make his speech.
Farouk, who is presumed to own a no-nonsense personality, could be seen blocking politicians who were mostly women as they made it to the stage where Ruto and Mudavadi were.
He stood in their way until the music died and everyone resumed their seats.
Many Kenyans took to social media to express their opinions on Farouk’s action, some approved of the fact that he was executing his duties and that never has he ever allowed all and sundry to come close to the deputy president.
A random Twitter user, Ochomba Warioba said, “The guy is working. Learn something positive from Kibet. Power is seasonal. Once you have it… Make good use of it. A time comes when you can’t even whisk a fly away”
This is not the first time Faruk is finding himself in the news, especially on matters around the deputy president or those of the United Democratic Alliance party.
At one point there were claims that the deputy president’s aide slapped Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika in Karen.
Kihika who is also the Nakuru County gubernatorial candidate came out to dismiss the allegations saying his relationship with Faruk is intact.
“We have no issues at all. Farouk was even the best man during my wedding so he is a family friend. The issue that he slapped me last week is laughable. It was propaganda by bloggers hired by my opponents,” Kihika said.
