Thursday July 11, 2019-Renowned columnist and a scholar, Prof Makau Mutua, has coined a new name for Deputy President William Ruto.
Appearing on Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) on Wednesday, Makau, who is a Kenyan based in United States, termed Ruto’s Tanga Tanga group as Manga Manga.
The law professor noted that ‘Manga Manga’ name best suits Ruto’s team due to what he termed as the unnecessary trips they make across the country.
“I think the elected officials who are in the so-called Tangatanga group which I call Manga Manga have been put on payroll by Ruto. And so I don’t think that they are speaking with their voices,” Makau told award winning journalist , Jeff Koinange.
When asked by Jeff on why he called Ruto’s movement to ‘Manga Manga’, the controversial scholar said that the name is good for the group which is going to places they are not welcomed.
“Tanga Tanga is not a good term to call someone because its wondering aimlessly from place to place. But ‘manga manga’ is worse as it is like walking around without shoes and going to places you are not welcome,” Mutua said.
