Hague based Deputy President William Ruto yesterday contradicted the official government position and confirmed to the world that KDF officers looted Westgate shops, Ruto was however quick to add that President Uhuru had ordered an inquiry that will lead to corrective measures.
The eloquent Ruto told CNN’s Zain Verje that events at Westgate were unfortunate, he expressed confidence that corrective measures will be taken.
Ruto’s acknowledgement is the exact opposite of what Foreign Affairs Secretary Amina Mohammed told CNN’s Connect the World host Becky Anderson.
The anger expressed by Kenyan public even the president’s own online sycophants was shocking to the young regime, a testimony thatÂ you cannot hide or substitute incompetence by/with employing extreme Public Relations Machine!
