“Naweza kuwatuma Nairobi?” (Can I send you to Nairobi?),” Lelaki asked the DP. “Haina shida, kama ni kitu tunaweza fanya, tutafanya. Lakini si Kwanza utuambie Jina yako,” (Yeah sure, if that is something we can do then we will do it but first tell us your name), replied the DP.

Shock has gripped Deputy President William Ruto after a Samburu local refused his money offer and, instead, wanted to pay him to deliver a message.

The man left the Deputy President perplexed after this move and instead asked him to deliver a message to “himself” in Nairobi. This was during the DP’s unplanned recent tour of the region when he landed in one of the villages where he met with one Lelaki Leriano.

Going by a Facebook post by Dennis Itumbi, the DP was surprised that Lelaki did not identify him as the Deputy President  and had no idea who he was speaking to.

“Naweza kuwatuma Nairobi?” (Can I send you to Nairobi?),” Lelaki asked the DP. “Haina shida, kama ni kitu tunaweza fanya, tutafanya. Lakini si Kwanza utuambie Jina yako,” (Yeah sure, if that is something we can do then we will do it but first tell us your name), replied the DP.

And when asked what he wanted from the city, he simply responded “Endeni muambie huyo mkubwa mmeleta atafute mtu anaitwa Ruto. Muambie yeye tunamwombea sana.” Loosely translated to as go and tell whoever you have brought here to go tell Ruto we are praying for him. Curious that the man did not know he was talking with Ruto himself, the DP teased him to clarify who Ruto was before the poor villager only said he (the DP) is just a normal human being in Nairobi who they have heard he wants to be president.

When asked who the president was, the man also said Kenya’s head of state is Saitoti but the DP was quick to correct him that the President is Uhuru Kenyatta.

“Oouh yeah…Kenyatta. But please don’t forget to tell Ruto what I have said…tell him we are praying for him and he should give us back our rifles to take care of our cattle,” he said.

Then Ruto reached out to his pocket and got some money to give him but the villager rejected saying, “No, I don’t want your money, you go deliver my message. I should be the one to pay you for sending you,” Lelaki said in Swahili before the DP and his team left and his team left for neighboring Marsabit County.
