Mr Ombori Monari, a fierce critic of Jubilee administration and a leader of Abagusii community in US, now claims Ruto's education standards cannot allow him to work for any company in the United States of America.

"These boys being bought for Sh1,000 think everybody who works in America is washing toilets and old people. I can assure you not even your Ruto can work in the company am working for. In fact, he can only work for me if he comes around," argued Ombori.

In a video that has since gone viral, the Minnesota based activist also poked holes at DP Ruto's alleged divisive politics, adding that he does not have any chances of leading the country in future.

He defended Kenyans working in the US, adding that most of them are learned and Nairobi economy hugely depends on them. According to him, Dr Ruto's academic qualifications should now be investigated.

"Kenyans working in America are learned. They have educated their children. You can't compare their credentials with that of Ruto which is questionable. We pump a lot of money to Kenyan economy. We are well paid than professors," he said, adding that Ruto will not make it iin 2022.

On reducing poverty in Kenya, he said, such attempts could be futile due to millions of money being stolen from taxpayers. He blamed youths 'glorifying' politicians, adding that they have started worshiping 'handouts'.

Mr Ombori and his colleague Samuel Okemwa, are often critical of Dr Ruto's onslaught in Gusii region and have often put on task local leadership over inability to deliver their promises.

Throughout 2017 polls, the two were lead figures in opposition campaigns and are said to have mobilised resources for Mr Odinga especially among the Abagusii people. They also campaigned for Mr Odinga both in Kisii and Nyamira Counties.
