Is true that Ruto's allies are being victimised?

OPINION

It is clear for everyone to see that the fight against corruption in Kenya has been politicised.

Our criminal justice system has unfortunately been politicised and it is being used to victimise those that have supported Deputy President William Ruto.

 I agree with Dr Ruto that a number of leaders associated with him have been targeted by authorities simply because of being allied with him.

It is not a coincidence that majority of politicians that have been dragged to court or are currently being investigated support the DP.

The fact that most of the cases have dragged on for long without being prosecuted proves that it’s all witch-hunt and political persecution.

 The leaders are being punished for supporting Ruto. It is wrong to use government agencies to punish and settle political scores with people you don’t agree with.

I am however happy that Ruto has over the years proved to be a strong man despite the war against him. As we head to 2022, the war waged against him will even be more fierce.
