RUTO SET A GREAT EXAMPLE WITH APOLOGY TO RAILA

RUTO SET A GREAT EXAMPLE WITH APOLOGY TO RAILA

With the apology, Ruto masterfully managed a crisis that threatened to derail his campaign post-BBI ruling messaging, and set a positive tone that shows politics should not lead to enmity.

Deputy President William Ruto deserves credit for taking responsibility and apologizing to former Prime Minister Raila Odinga for the attack he endured in Uasin Gishu last week. In the often toxic hand-to-hand combat Kenyan presidential campaigns, it was refreshing to see a leading candidate take to the mic to apologize directly and unambiguously to his...

COSMO CHOY VULGAR ATTACK ON MAMA NGINA DESERVES A BAN FROM SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS

COSMO CHOY VULGAR ATTACK ON MAMA NGINA DESERVES A BAN FROM SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS

Choy, DP Ruto's supporter, social media channels are filled with hundreds of crude insults that are beneath basic standards of decency. He has proven to be too immature to handle social media like a responsible adult. His crude attack on Kenya's founding First Lady is inexcusable. He has also crudely attacked Charity Ngilu and called for the lynching of IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati

YouTube and social media platforms should consider banning menace, Cosmo Choy for his unprintable vulgar insults directed at Kenya’s founding First Lady Mama Ngina Kenyatta and his litany of hate-filled and crude videos. Even though public figures have less protection from public attacks, Choy’s crude and prolonged attack on the first lady appears to violate...

NAMWAMBA’S COLUMN MAKES A MOCKERY OF RUTO’S TRIP ABROAD

NAMWAMBA’S COLUMN MAKES A MOCKERY OF RUTO’S TRIP ABROAD

Ruto's trip abroad showed he has no clout internationally. Maybe now, to equalize the score for Ruto calling him "jamaa ya vitendawili," Odinga should start calling Ruto "jamaa wa kutanga-tanga White House."

Ababu Namwamba is a talented politician but this time he seems to be borrowing heavily from some unscrupulous politician who once said if you cannot convince them, confuse them.  That seems to be Ababu Namwamba’s goal in his March 13, 2022 column in the Nation headlined: Hustler’s US, UK, visit was a game-changer. Yes, it was a...
