VIDEO:Ruto Responds to Circumcision Remarks on Moi
On Tuesday, the Star newspaper had explicitly reported that the DP made the derogatory statements targeting Mr Moi at a political rally in Belgut.
“My statements have never been about trivialities like circumcision but as always the STAR is at it. I understand sales matter. ‘Isorait!’,” wrote the DP on his twitter account.
The DP who was quoted from his vernacular address in Kericho, was over the weekend campaigning for Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) candidate Aaron Cheruiyot for the Kericho Senetorial seat in the upcoming by-election.
His denial remarks came just hours after Baringo MCAs held a press conference condemning the DP and demanding an immediate apology from the Rift Valley kingpin.
Reports had claimed that the Senator Moi was being targeted by the DP due to his growing popularity among the Kalenjins with his KANU outfit.
On the other hand, Ruto, whose authority in the Rift Valley is currently dwindling especially in the South Rift region, has resorted to counter his rivals influence viciously to maintain his influence over the vote rich region.
