Barely a day after threatening to boycott the S. K Macharia owned station, Deputy President William Ruto’s team has sprung into immediate action making good their threat.
This is after two of the second in command’s allies simultaneously cancelled their scheduled interviews on local Television stations yesterday evening Monday September 6, 2021.
Led by Kikuyu legislator Kimani Ichungwa who in turn skipped the show after he was scheduled for an interview on KTN news alongside political commentator Peter Kagwanja and Ndaragwa legislator, Jeremiah Kioni.
Speaking about the same, Hustler Nation spokesman Dennis Itumbi said that Ichungwa had not confirmed his availability for the interview despite the media house making a poster, with Ichungwa as one of the participants.
“We told you in very clear terms, that you owe Hustler Nation an apology, till then, we are keeping off your shows with Kagwanja,” Itumbi tweeted.
All did not end there as Kiambu County Woman representative Gathoni Wa Muchumba was also set for a nother interview with TV 47 Television but also failed to show up.
The vocal woman representative recently decamped from President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Kieleweke wing of the ruling Jubilee party to DP President William Ruto’s hustler brigade.
Giving a statement after the boycott Wa Muchomba noted that she would not engage in a political debate with Sports Cabinet Administrative Secretary, Zack Kinuthia.
“Dear my fans, I will not attend the TV 47 show tonight as planned. I will not engage in a political debate with an appointed CAS – Zack Kinuthia. He should first resign from public service,” the MP stated.
This comes even as the Jubilee party secretary general Raphael Tuju revived deputy president William Ruto’s past incidences of grafts and abuse of office.
Speaking yesterday at a press conference at the Jubilee party Pangani headquarters, Tuju questioned the vast wealth owned by the DP, adding that Dr. Ruto ought to inform Kenyans how he acquired such immense wealth in a short time.
“The DP is on video record when he told Kenyans that he is worth Ksh100m in 2015… In the intervening seven years, he has worked very hard and has assets like choppers, hotels, and land worth billions,” Tuju stated.
“He should show ‘hustlers’ and us clueless adults on how to acquire such property in such a short time,” the CS without portfolio added.
Tuju further challenged the DP to share his tax records from the tax collection body Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA).
