HAS DP RUTO FINALLY BECOME KENYA’S DE FACTO OPPOSITION LEADER?

His deviant entry into Kisii, despite the earlier opposition and protests on the ground, his language while addressing charged-up crowds, and his reference to his government in the third person voice, while criticizing it for misusing the police, are all hallmarks of opposition politics.

The dehumanizing beating that this lady got in the hands of four policemen, who are ironically supposed to safeguard the rule of law, is simply despicable. Period. Anybody citing the lady’s political affiliation to justify her unwarranted brutalization is a worse misogynist than those four criminals who beat her up.
