Deputy President William Ruto renewed his attacks on Raila Odinga at the coastal City when he branded the opposition chief as a fake engineer.
Ruto who was addressing 1st inter-professional summit at Shanzu in Mombasa revealed how his political rival Raila was once busted by the Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK
“The quality of leadership must be evident in one’s work. Like everything else, there are fakes and quacks,” Ruto remarked.
He compared the former premier to quack doctor Muga Wa Wairimu whose dark activities hit the headlines in the past when it emerged he drugging pregnant women before engaging them in sex.
His choice of making a reference of Mugo a Kikuyu while describing Raila has been quickly read as a mockery on the handshake between Uhuru and the opposition leader.
“We have fake engineers, I remember I had a friend who used to indicate before his name that he was an engineer.
“Someone from the Board of Engineers wrote him a note, ‘Sir, send us your papers so that we can regularize your position as an engineer’,” he added as the audience burst out in laughter.
