Uhuru Fires Back Ruto Over ‘Killing His Children’ Remark

Uhuru claimed that because he believes in God, he is incapable of carrying out such deeds even if he has authority.

President Uhuru Kenyatta responded to William Ruto’s comments that he shouldn’t kill his children now that he isn’t endorsing him for the presidency.

Uhuru claimed that because he believes in God, he is incapable of carrying out such deeds even if he has authority.

“Those telling me not to kill their children are only telling me not to do what they, themselves would do if they were in my position. That is what they just think about. That’s what they would do if they were in power. They are led by the devil. I am led by my God,” Uhuru said.

Speaking when launching a dam in Gatundu North, Kiambu County, he urged the community not to believe what had been promised to them, calling it empty talk.

“Restrain yourselves from electing a thief, I don’t want to hear you crying regretting, there are people who have funny stories but they are as sweet as honey and so convincing, but they are poison,” he said.

In the days leading up to the elections on August 9, Ruto urged Uhuru to avoid making statements that could divide the country.

The DP scolded his employer, claiming that he was the one who elected President Uhuru, in a bare-knuckle response to claimed threats from the president.

“We are the ones who voted for you for the presidency, and now you want to threaten me? as long as you do not harm my children, We should respect each other,” Ruto had said.
