Mutahi Ngunyi Under Fire for Controversial Remarks Attacking DP RP Ruto During K24 Interview

DP Ruto (L) and Mutahi Ngunyi(R)

Renown political scientist Mutahgi Ngunyi has come under fire for the controversial remarks he made yesterday night during a discussion on K24 TV.


Mutahi and presenters from the Fort Hall School of Government took issue with Deputy President William Ruto and his allies celebrating the High Court ruling the declared BBI unconstitutional.


In the segment dubbed ‘Damaging Ignorance’ Mutahi Ngunyi claimed that by celebrating the court ruling on BBI, DP Ruto indicated that he supports post-election violence, comments that did not go down well with Kenyans.


He also claimed that anyone celebrating the fall of the BBI following the court ruling that declared it illegal is an enemy of Kenya, noting the benefits that implementing the recommendations would bring.


According to Ngunyi, if BBI is not passed before the next election, Kenya will continue losing thousands of its citizens to post-election violence.


He also argued that BBI seeks to provide inclusivity, adding that anyone opposing the Bill is more interested in having a Kikuyu-Kalenjin dominance.

“Ruto celebrated when BBI fell. What does this mean? He supports killing 1000 Kenyans every election, like we have done it since 1992. He supports Kikuyu-Kalenjin dominance because his running mate will be a Kikuyu. Everyone else is political nuclear waste,” he tweeted after the show.


Netizens responded swiftly to these remarks, challenging state agencies to act swiftly against the Prof and his team over what they termed as inciting remarks.

Here are some of the reactions:
