Deputy President William Ruto Wishes Political Enemy Raila Happy Birthday

Deputy President William Ruto took a break from his main political rivalry with opposition leader Raila Odinga and wished him goodwill wishes.

Ruto took to his official Twitter account to wish his 2022 presidential race rival who turned 77 today a happy birthday.

Unlike in his political rallies where he refers to Raila as mtu wa kitendawili [a man of riddles], Ruto addressed Raila as Jakom, a respectful title used among the Luo to informally refer to people who enjoy prominence in social, political or economic settings.

Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) chairman and former Machakos Senator Johnstone Muthama also wished the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader happy birthday.

Muthama, a former Raila ally who ditched Raila’s 2017 presidential vehicle for the National Super Alliance (NASA) for UDA posted a picture of him with the ODM leader and wished him a happy birthday.

“Happy Birthday Jakom. The Hustler Nation wishes you good health as you celebrate your special day,” Muthama wrote on his Twitter.
