DP Ruto’s top blogger Boni Khalwale has blasted former Sports CS Rashid Echesa for dumping William Ruto and publicly taking a vow to support Musalia Mudavadi for the 2022 top seat. Khalwale who has been reduced to a choir master and an online blogger for the DP felt deeply hurt by Echesa’s decision to dump his paymaster, who is running around the country buying leaders like heads of cattle.
In a tweet on his official twitter handle, Khalwale equates Echesa to a marijuana addict who is undergoing withdrawal symptoms after stopping consumption of the hard drug.He says Echesa’s change of tune, to dump Ruto is because of Echesa’s abrupt firing from the cabinet.
”Political power, like cannabis sativa (bangi), is addictive & can have severe withdrawal effects. The abrupt firing of former CS Rashid Echesa is the ONLY reason for his so called ditching of William Ruto. Classical attention seeking behavior!” reads a tweet from the former Kakamega Senator.
Rashid Echesa and Boni Khalwale were tight political buddies just few weeks ago when the two politicians converged at Khalwale’s Malinya home in Kakamega at an event where DP was in attendance. Khalwale was making his public defection from Ford-Kenya to Jubilee Ruto’s faction.
Echesa has vowed to put in blood , sweat and tears in his new political home to ensure Mudavadi becomes president in 2022.He has told residents of Western Kenya not to be swayed by DP Ruto’s millions which he is using to buy politicians from the region in return for support.
