Two of our top foot soldiers are in ugly spat on social media. Ruth Ambogo who appears on a popular Jambo radio show is a youthful lady with ambitions to be the Vihiga Woman rep in 2022.
She got into confrontation with a popular nominated MCA VENNA UBAGGA of Vihiga.
After the confrontation, which took place at the height of the Matungu campaign, Ruth Ambogo threatened to sue VENNA claiming that the MCA threatened to kill her. She wrote as follows on social media;
“…. Vihiga County nominated MCA Venna Ubbaga Kaisha, I am not your age mate neither are you of my class and stature. Threatening to kill me in the presence of witnesses is a criminal offence punishable by life imprisonment. Get a good lawyer because I will PERSONALLY represent myself. Don’t get me started on your master. Pambana na wamama wa rika yako… “
End of quote.
My free advise to our youthful leaders in ANC party. Always sieve through whatever you put on public platforms.it exposes the other part of you.leadership demand alot of humility for you to be accepted before the electorate . imagine the class you are despising are the ones who votes.i would request you take rebuke positive and engage with everyone with love.
As ANC we must learn that politics has no class. Today it is you..kesho ni mimi.
Ruth as you ingia politics jifunze kwamba hii kitu haina hasira yawa. Politics haitaki hasira wala haitaki makasiriko.You will need this nominated MCA tomorrow.
Venna may be nominated today,that doesn’t mean she has no following. Work towards reconciliation, forgiveness, accomodating opposite views and criticism and bringing your enemies closer.
But my advise to Ambogo is that umeanza vibaya. This kind of writings depicts you as arrogant, proud, and condescending. Attributes that may follow your career. If you are a politician, just keep off social media when angry.
