‘Ruto is a clerk,’ Says CS Keriako Tobiko

The war of words between Environment CS Keriako Tobiko and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen has taken an unexpected turn as the CS termed Ruto as a clerk to the president.

Earlier the Senator had tweeted, “You forget so fast that you became a CS because the President was trying to get rid of you from the office of DPP. You have no moral authority to lecture your boss the DP even if he is being molested by his boss. First try to be MCA.”

Feeling slighted, CS Keriako Tobiko replied tersely, “Kwa Murkomen awe na dabu maanake hana adabu kabisa. Amekuwa yeye ni wa kuongea na kutukana viongozi wengine hata rais. Lazima aambiwe awe na dabu na muheshimu rais. Hata huyo Mkubwa wake ni karani wa Rais. Just the way I respect the president as a clerk in his government pia hao lazima wamuheshimu.”

The CS also added, “Respect is two-way traffic. If Murkomen and the deputy president cannot respect the president they do not deserve to be respected by anyone”.
