Keep off our politics, Mbabazi tells Ruto


Go Forward presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi, has told off Kenya deputy president, William Ruto, to stay out of Ugandan politics.

A week back, a team of politicians from Kenya attended a fundraiser in Sebei region, a cover they used to canvass votes for President Yoweri Museveni.

They are; Elgeyo Marakwet County senator Kipchumba Murkomen, Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago, Endebess county MP Robert Pukose and deputy president William Ruto’s personal assistant, Farouk Kibet.

Trans-Zoia senator Henry Ole-Ndiema, Narok governor Samuel Tunai and Ruto had already visited Sebei sub-region to drum up support for Museveni.

At the fundraiser in Sebei, accpoliticians Pukose and Tunai handed over 100 bags of cement, 170 iron sheets and Shs48 million for the completion of schools in Tumbaboi (Kapchorwa), Ngenge (Kween) and Kapkoros (Bukwo).

Addressing press at John Eneku village in Soroti town on Monday, Mbabazi said Ruto is camping in Sebei canvassing support for Museveni.

“Ruto must keep off our politics,” Mbabazi said.

Mbabazi said it was unethical for Kenya to meddle in Uganda politics.

“Ruto should keep out of our politics,” Mbabazi repeated.

He said the Kenyan vice president was being partisan by directly taking part in the Ugandan electoral process.

Ugandans vote on Thursday for a new leader.

In December 2015,

Ruto’s camped at Kapchorwa State Lodge and later joined Museveni at his rally in the district, asking Ugandans to vote for steady progress.

“Museveni called on William Ruto for support. Wiliam Ruto should be careful of hanging around a falling tree, it might fall on him,” FDC candidate Kizza Besigye posted on his party’s Twitter handle, protesting the move by the Kenyan.
