Ruto 2023 christmas gift in Sugoi

In response to criticism of President William Ruto's distribution of Christmas presents to neighbors in Sugoi, Uasin Gishu County, EALA MP Falhada Dekow Iman has defended the president.

Dekow highlighted Ruto's philanthropic nature in an interview with the Star, highlighting the president's yearly custom of exchanging Christmas presents with individuals living in close proximity.

"Why would anyone have the confidence to attack President William Ruto for delivering Christmas joy in Sugoi through exchanging festive delicacies with nearby residents?" asked the lawmaker.

She explained that at the end of each year, the president has established the custom of giving what he can to those in his immediate vicinity.

The former senator emphasized that sharing is encouraged in all faiths, including Islam, especially by the less wealthy.

At his Sugoi home on Friday, Ruto, his wife Rachael Ruto, and Governors Jonathan Bii (Uasin Gishu) and Johnson Sakaja (Nairobi), together with a number of MPs and MCAs, gave out Christmas treats to hundreds of people.

Nonetheless, a group of leaders and other Kenyans attacked the president's activities, calling them a farce and arguing that the Kenya Kwanza government had not made significant attempts to lessen the difficulties that Kenyans faced.

Dekow brushed off their position, saying that the wisest thing for those who don't want to help or share with the less fortunate is to say nothing at all.

"For those in positions of authority who have no desire to lend a hand or share amongst those who have fewer opportunities, the least they could do is to stay away from disparaging those who are able to," she said.

It is fundamental politeness, she argued, to remain mute when someone is offering assistance.

She emphasized, "Only cruel and callous people would condemn deeds of kindness."

Hussein Mohamed, the spokeswoman for the State House, has also supported Ruto in his Christmas contributions.

Mohamed stated on X on Saturday, "Unbelievable how some (whose sport it is to find fault at every detail, as the President said) would criticize sharing with the people."

Ruto faced criticism for enacting harsh tax laws that, according to some, had reduced Kenyans to beggars.
