Deputy President William Ruto has been hailed for his reaction when he allegedly found himself under humiliation at the Bomas of Kenya during the BBI report launch, Wednesday.
Pundits have observed that the DP was subjected to mistreatment by the presidential team which organized the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) report launch.
The latest one to criticize the same becomes political analyst Dismas Mokua, who says that apart from the humiliation, there were also attempts by the speakers to provoke him.
However, speaking on KTN's Inside Politics on Sunday, he lauded the DP for keeping his cool throughout the ordeal.
"For me, the person who deserves a pat in the back out of the Bomas team is the Deputy President because he was provoked by almost all speakers but he maintained his cool," he said.
He also took issue with the protocol, where the DP, who should be the last person to speak before the president, was switched with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
According to Mokua, this was an unfortunate happening, which calls for a formal apology from the team that organized the event.
"I think the protocol officers or whoever gave the directions need to do a formal apology to the Deputy President because you cannot do that," he added.
Surprisingly, all this happened in the presence of President Uhuru Kenyatta, who personally appeared less interested in his deputy and more jovial towards Raila, his new ally.
