Former Kenyan presidential candidate Mwalimu Dida has taken a swipe at Deputy President William Ruto accusing him of being good at marketing himself but failing to deliver.

In a tweet on Saturday night, Dida likened Ruto to night hawkers who take advantage of the night to sell customer fake products.

“Supporting Ruto is like buying nice shoes from a night trader in Githurai. He is a charming marketer and gives unbeatable bargain to convince you. You wake up the following morning only to realise that you bought 2 faded left-sided shoes that are older than Lwanda Magere!” he tweeted.

Mwalimu Dida, however, did not single out any incident or remark from the DP that prompted him to make the conclusion.

Meanwhile, the DP is having a good time in Dubai and was on Saturday evening had dinner at the Nusr-Et owned by the popular restaurateur Nusret Gökçe alias Salt Bae.

The DP took part in the internet sensation method of sprinkling salt on the steak he was served by Salt bae.

"This evening I interacted with Hustler Salt Bae, a Turkish butcher, who has created a successful hustle out of salt, nyama and a knife. Mahustler wa Kenyatta , burma, dagoreti markets na wengine mko na compe na lessons hapo, mjipange. Kazi ni kazi, wìra ni wìra, mboka ni mboka," his Tweet read.

He was accompanied by former Mombasa Senator Hassan Omar.
