A section of Kenyans is bitter that the former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto was denied a chance to eulogize his successor in three services held at, Nairobi, Bomet Green Stadium and Fort Tenan respectively.
Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) leader was so cool all this time and even took a moment to tweet his condolences to the family of Obonyo.
Every key leader in all three services was given chance to talk but not Bomet’s first governor who ditched Jubilee for NASA.
Our prayers and heartfelt condolences to the family of Hon. Joyce Laboso in this time of loss and grief. The Governor will be remembered for her dedication to improving the lives of the residents of Bomet. #RIPJoyceLaboso pic.twitter.com/Ro2HnOQKQO

Before then, there has been a great rift between the two Rutos who are fighting for Kalenjin’s kingship.
According to Isaac Ruto, the 2017 Bomet gubernatorial election was not between him and the late Joyce Laboso but between him and Jubilee.
Most people don't know why Isaac Ruto lost the gubernatorial seat in Bomet. Listen carefully, RUTO was never defeated by Joyce Laboso. Isaac RUTO has rigged out. Even Bomet people whisper of this in the dark corners of their houses. I was there. I saw. But Isaac is a gentleman. pic.twitter.com/XqPapn6kDK

The ‘beef’ between the two Rutos according to a section of Kenyans, is the reason he was not given a chance to speak during Laboso’s sen off.
Denying Isaac Ruto an opportunity to give condolences to the people of Bomet during Laboso’s memorial service was utterly unfair, undignified reasoning. This created a perception that having contested same position they were enemies to death! Remember Isaac visited her in Hosp

DP Ruto is the one who drafted the Program, so how could you expect him to include Isaac Ruto surely, but malipo ni hapa hapa Duniani, ata yeye atakuwa "Former DP" pia.

This was a plan to humiliate Isaac Ruto
being the predecessor he had all reasons to eulogize his successor.

Do you think it was unfair for Isaac Ruto to be denied the chance at least to say a word?
