Embakasi East MP has not taken DP Ruto’s comment on the Luo Community lightly.In a bare knuckle rebuttal at Parliament buildings,Babu Owino told William Ruto to grow up and if he had run out of political ideas,he was ready to admit him in Raila Odinga’s school of thought.
“The Deputy President must respect the Luo community. He used to be a minor in ODM and Raila Odinga was his boss. If he disrespects a major tribe, what about minor tribes? We respect Kalenjins because we are all Nilotes. DP Ruto must grow up. If he’s run out of ideas, let him subscribe to Raila’s school of thought,” said the MP. ”Luo is the language of God,and the DP must be made aware of that,” he added.
A clip showing the DP profiling the Luo community went viral on social media causing public outrage,something which prompted the leaders to rebuke Ruto’s comments and call him to order.
”Kwani hawa watu wana tuambia saa hii stori mingi hatuwajui, si tunawajua?. Ni watu ya kubomoa, kama hawa bomoi chama, wana bomoa nyumba, kama hawa bomoi nyumba wana ngoa reli, kama hawa ngoi reli, wana tenganisha marafiki….. sasa hii watu ambao tuna waelewa we are entertaining them for what purpose,” Ruto said on the 30 second clip.
