Congolese envoy demands apology from Ruto over distasteful remarks

CAPTION: Congolese envoy Francine Muyumba

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has issued a formal complaint over erroneous remarks made by Deputy President William Ruto during a campaign rally.

Speaking through social media on Tuesday, 15th February 2022, Congolese envoy Ambassador Francine Muyumba Nkanga demanded an apology from the second-in-command after his mockery of the country’s livestock production.

During an earlier campaign rally, Ruto distastefully claimed that DRC, a country with over 90 million people, does not have a single cow.

But according to Ms. Francine, the statement by the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader was a complete misinterpretation of facts and reality on the ground.

“Mr. Vice Preisident William Ruto, this is really unacceptable, with all due respect there is a need to withdraw this statement. If DRC did not have a single cow how could Kenya sign economic deals with DRC?” asked the ambassador.

“Equity is currently making money in Congo, this is an insult,” she added.

In a follow-up post, Ambassador Francine gave Ruto an additional piece of advice that he ought to be diplomatically conscious even as he seeks to popularize his campaign bid.

“We are friends to #KENYA, A candidate running for the highest office of the Country William Ruto needs to be diplomatically conscience as Kenya needs to strengthen economic ties in the region for Kenya’s internal economic growth. Kenya Airways is now flying in some of our big cities,” she warned.

This latest mishap in Ruto’s campaign team comes barely a week after seasoned Luhya politician Aababu Namwamba was appointed as the official Foreign Relations representative in his freshly-organized secretariat.

The immediate former Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who boasts of considerable diplomatic talents now faces the challenge of fixing the blunder caused by his employer’s loose tongue.
