Ngilu Roasts Ruto Over Deported Turkish Ally


Ngilu, while referring to the relationship between DP Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta, questioned which government Ruto was apologizing on behalf of following Aydin’s deportation.

Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu on Tuesday, August 10 bashed Deputy President William Ruto over his tweet claiming he called deported Turkish businessman Harun Aydin to apologize to him on behalf of the government.

Aydin was reported to have been deported on Monday morning, August 9, after spending two nights in ATPU’s custody. He was reported to have left the country for Istanbul at 4:25 am.

In a tweet on Monday, August 9, DP Ruto had criticized Aydin’s deportation, detailing the games as those filled with political pettiness by government officials who he described as using politics to fight terrorism.

Ngilu, while referring to the relationship between DP Ruto and President Uhuru Kenyatta, questioned which government Ruto was apologizing on behalf of following Aydin’s deportation.

She questioned whether the DP was running a parallel government to that of President Kenyatta, adding that Ruto was “sowing confusion in government and across the country”.

Ala! Kwani kuna serikali ngapi huku Kenya? (How many governments do we have in Kenya?) Bw’ DP, which GoK are you apologizing on behalf?

“The Government of Kenya arrested the alleged terror financier. The confusion you have been sowing in government and across the country, sasa umeanza ku-export (you have started exporting) to our trading partners?” Ngilu posed in a tweet.

The Deputy President had hit out at the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU), accusing them of torturing the Turkish national while he was in their custody. 

“Just talked & apologized on behalf of GoK to Aydin Harun, now in Turkey, who was politically arrested, tortured & falsely profiled as a ‘terrorist’ but later asked to fly out not to shame those involved. Political pettiness is expensive/dangerous & will destroy our economy,” he wrote.

Following Aydin’s departure from the country, lawyer, Ahmednasir Abdullahi, who represented Aydin, blasted the government for allegedly deporting him as he was set to appear at the Kahawa West Law Courts for a hearing of his case.

He further offered clarity to Aydin’s deportation from Kenya, stating that Aydin left on a voluntary basis and not formally by Kenyan authorities as alleged by reports.
