Angry Residents Tell off William Ruto over High Cost of Living

A video circulating on social media shows Mombasa residents apparently admonishing President William Ruto regarding the high cost of living as he attempted to address them.

The footage of Ruto being heckled has gained widespread online attention.

The head of state commenced his tour of the coastal region on Thursday, November 2, and it appears that he did not receive the usual warm reception he usually enjoys during his regional tours across the nation.

The video, widely shared online, depicts how his efforts to speak to a crowd on Friday, November 3, took a negative turn as the crowd shouted him down, demanding lower fuel prices, which, in turn, have led to an increase in the cost of living.

In the amateur video, Ruto’s words were drowned out by the crowd’s heckling, which began subtly and then escalated.

This video surfaced shortly after the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA) had announced new fuel prices following an upward review.

According to the agency, the new prices were determined by the weighted average cost of imported fuel commodities and were revealed on Saturday, October 14.

Presently, a liter of petrol in Nairobi is priced at KSh 217.36, up from KSh 211.64 in the previous month; diesel is at KSh 205.47, up from KSh 200.99, and kerosene at KSh 205.06, up from KSh 202.61.

Additionally, another video emerged online about two weeks ago featuring a group of voters whose loyalty to Ruto and the ruling party had been put to the test.

In the viral video, these Kenyan citizens expressed their discontent with the country’s situation, with many regretting their choice to support Ruto’s administration when he took office.

They expressed their disappointment in their decision to persuade young people to vote for Ruto over Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition Party Leader Raila Odinga.

One of the individuals in a matatu lamented, “If we had known… We told the youth to vote for this young man, leaving the old one, but little did we know that we were digging our own grave.”
