Online users have furiously attacked Deputy President William Ruto and Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok after a picture was posted online where they were standing next to a group of Turkana Residents who are suffering from the harsh climate conditions going for days without food.
Taking the venting online one of the social media influencers noted how shameful it was standing next to the problems one is supposed to solve
“How do you go and stand next to the problems you are supposed to solve? Kenyan government has no excuse for letting Northern Kenya down. No excuse whatsoever. In other countries, if you ignore people this much, they will take up arms and demand to govern themselves.”
