DP Ruto’s problems are upsurging and the son of a charcoal-burner is creating so many enemies directly and indirectly than friends and this time around, his political bad omen has landed on the people of Western Kenya, the main bloc he wants to be a darling to.

Six Luhya legislators have banished DP William Ruto from setting his foot in the region after the Wednesday night government eviction of the Luhya community from Kabtabongen, Kibtuiya ward, Chesumei sub-county in Nandi County.

Cleophas Malala, Kakamega Senator led the six MPs stating that DP Ruto has evicted Luhyas from Nandi and refused to give back their lands, a move they termed as insulting to the entire community that had welcomed him.

Though figures are not verified by this site, sources state that almost rather more than 1,500 families were rendered homeless after they were evicted in Kabtabongen, Kibtuiya ward, Chesumei sub-county in Nandi County following a prolonged land tussle.

“I don’t want to mince my words on this, I want to tell the Deputy President (Ruto) you are not welcome in our area if our people are being evicted from Nandi,” Malala said in a Thursday presser.

“We do not want to have friends only when they come to look for votes,” Osotsi said.

Caleb Amisi MP Saboti,  Florence Mutua, Busia woman representative, George Aladwa MP Makadara, Geoffrey Osotsi, ANC nominated MP and ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna are the legislators that have banished DP Ruto from stepping in the western lands.

Other than cussing and banishing DP Ruto, the legislators urged President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga to intervene stating that Students and Pupils sitting this year’s National Examination risks missing all-important exam papers.

The Nandi County government responded to the evictions through this letter dated 10th October 2019. The letter doesn’t have the official signature of the Nandi Governor Stephen Sang.

DP Ruto is expected in Western Kenya tomorrow where he will be attending the burial of former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale’s first wife in Ikolomani. It remains unsure if the DP will snub the burial ceremony of his best friend’s wife or he will attend and throw the Malala led legislators ban under their noses.
