World famous journalist celebrates Ruto’s win in wake of Etale’s claims of what UDA did to get CNN, BBC good coverage

Coming hot on the heels of suggestions by the Communications Department of the Orange Democratic Movement party about what the Kenya Kwanza camp apparently had to do in order to get the favourable coverage they got from international media houses, now one of the world’s most famous journalists was in a celebratory mood as the Supreme Court of Kenya upheld President-Elect William Ruto’s victory.

Skynews journalist Kimberly Leonard took to Twitter to express her joy at the fact that as the Kenyan Supreme Court was announcing its verdict on the presidential Election Petition, her sister was giving birth in a Nairobi hospital at the same time.  She excitedly posted,

My sister is literally giving birth in #Nairobi as the Supreme Court makes this announcement!

Soon after, she revealed that her sister had given birth to a baby girl, and even requested for name suggestions. Her tweet read,

The baby came before the ruling! Name suggestions #KOT It is a little girl  Meanwhile, we are still here.

Earlier on, ODM Communications Director Phillip Etale had sensationally insinuated that the United Democratic Alliance party was soliciting for sympathy by paying for articles in both local and international media. His tweet read,

@EtalePhilip
Azimio has not called for any form of demonstrations anywhere in Kenya. Our Lawyers presented facts & we are confident of a positive ruling by SCOK tomorrow. We ain’t sponsoring any articles in local & international media, neither are we soliciting for sympathy from any quarters.

The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the Aug. 9 election of William Ruto as president in a unanimous decision, Chief Justice Martha Koome said in a scathing judgement that swept aside opposition leader Raila Odinga’s accusations of cheating.

“This is a unanimous decision of the court … This court upholds the election of the first respondent (William Ruto) as the president-elect,” Koome, who heads the seven-member court, said during a televised ruling.

Ruto, 55, has been serving as outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta’s deputy since 2013 but fell out with Kenyatta after the last election. Kenyatta formed an alliance with his long-time rival Odinga instead.
