Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday had a rough time calming down a section of the youths who were heckling him while he was addressing residents in Laikipia County.

The heckling intensified but Ruto remained unshaken and instead challenged his hecklers to leave his rally if they felt uncomfortable.

He further asked them to organize their rallies where they could heckle instead of disrupting his campaigns.

“Hapana hamtaharibu mkutano yangu, mpange mkutano yenu, wacheni upuzi. Hapana… Siwezikukubali. Kwani mumekuja kutupigia Makelele hapa? (You can come here to disrupt our rally, organize you rallies where you can heckle, you should stop this nonsense. I can’t allow this to happen, you can’t make noise for us),” Ruto said.

Adding: “Lazima tuwe an nidhamu, msikuje hapa kupiga kelele kwa mikutano yangu. Kila mtu apange mkutane yake… Apange mkutano yake, hii mkutano ni yangu (We must have respect between up, you can make noises in my rally. Let everyone organize their rallies where they can heckle).

In the same rally, Laikipia Woman Rep Cate Waruguru who recently jumped the ship to Ruto’s camp was also heckled by a section of the youth.
