Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi has warned President William Ruto that the people will turn against him if he does not deliver his promises.
In a statement via Twitter on Monday, February 6, Ngunyi advised President Ruto to go slow on the Kenyatta family arguing that the former first family are not his enemies.
He noted that weaponizing tax is a double edge sword that can affect ordinary Kenyans who will in turn revolt against the Kenya Kwanza government.
“Dear Ruto: Sell hope to the Nation. Weaponizing tax is a double-edged sword. It will slay Mama Ngina today, then Mama Mboga tomorrow. The Kenyattas are not your enemy. The people will become your enemy. And the groundswell has started. Take it or leave it,” Ngunyi stated.
His remarks come a day after Azimio la Umoja leader Raila Odinga demanded the Ruto government to respect Mama Ngina Kenyatta.
“Mliona Jana Mama ambaye anaheshimiwa sana Mama Ngina Kenyatta aliongea mambo ya ushuru manake mama huyo ametusiwa na hao watu vibaya sana. Hao watu hawajui pahali Kenya imetoka, huyo mama alikua ameshikwa wakati ile ya maumau akafungwa plae kamiti akakaa kwa muda mrefu Zaidi.
"Sasa mama kama huyo ambaye ni karibu miaka 90 unaenda kumtusi ya nini? Ni rika ya nyanya yako, kama huezi kumheshimu we ni mtu gani? Raila posed on Sunday during a rally at Kamukunji grounds in Kibra.
