Last Saturday, August 18, Deputy President (DP) William Ruto was honored for his exemplary political performance in the just concluded Young Achievers Awards convened in Uganda.
Ironically, in his keynote speech after he was conferred with the award which he termed as a Lifetime Achievement, Ruto slummed the old adage that time for youth leadership was coming ‘tomorrow’.
He insisted that time for the young generation to take up the trans-formative role had come.
I thank @WilliamsRuto for leading a strong delegation from Kenya and the commitments made on behalf of Kenya this afternoon. I congratulate him on the Young Achievers' Lifetime Award he received last night at Kampala Serena Hotel. pic.twitter.com/smEBV88xrt

However, despite his double speak, Ruto’s loud silence over the unlawful detention of Ugandan politician Bobi Wine who has been arrested and tortured and detained according to media reports did not augur well with Kenyans and Ugandans on social media.
As expected, we, as a nation, has been put to shame again. The entire world is united in calling for the freedom of Bobi Wine. Our own is here to show solidarity with the dictator.
Bobi Wine will not be freed soon.

This man had invited @HEBobiwine for his wedding as a guest of honor. Considering the inability of Bobbi to attend as he had promised, this man did not replace him. He was still the guest of honor! We won't replace and shall always have you in our prayers. #FreeBobiWine pic.twitter.com/fxKeFIdtlZ
