Alfred Keter's rude response to DP William Ruto's text message

Nandi Hills MP Alfred Keter is known for his sharp tongue and not even Deputy President William Ruto is spared.

On Wednesday evening, Keter shared a screenshot of a text message from DP Ruto, asking him and other MPs to help the Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga as he contests the Kibra by-election.

Members, as you are aware, there is a general election happening in Kibra. We need 75 MPs to help as agents to protect Mariga’s Jubilee vote. Please register by tomorrow Thursday, 31st October by 3pm,” the SMS stated and was signed as “William Ruto Deputy Leader, Jubilee.”

Keter proceeded to share the message on social media, and blasted the DP for asking him to support Mariga whom he described as a non-starter.

No amount of lobbying nor intimidation is going to make me support a non starter like Mariga who has never voted in his life and is not even from Kibra period!!! #Kwendeni uko,” Keter stated.

The sharp-tongue legislator has had a frosty relationship with Ruto which has been marked by frequent war of words since 2013.

Last year, the Nation reported an awkward moment as the two rivals were attending the wedding of Emurua Dikirr MP Johana Ngeno in Narok

Keter is said to have arrived late after the DP, temporarily disrupting the function as the crowd welcomed him with cheers.

Ruto was reportedly not amused and asked Keter why he was interrupting the DP’s function. The youthful MP hit back rather rudely: “are you the one marrying?”
