Deputy President William Ruto has denied profiling the Luo community in a video that has since gone viral on the interwebs.

In a statement, the DP said that the remarks made in the video have been blown out of context by those trying to rally support “through desperate and alarmist misinformation.”

Ruto also asked the media to soberly interpret issues and events unlike his detractors peddling lies through social media.

“We expect more sober and responsible interpretation and analysis of events and issues. The propagators of the anti-Ruto spin are blinded with desperation to the point that they cannot realise that they are the ones profiling a whole community,” Ruto said.

He also noted that he completely disagrees with the narrative that Luos are destructive in nature.

“Unless you’re telling me being Luo is equivalent to uprooting the railway, something I totally disagree with,” he added.

In the video which is apparently at least two months old, the self proclaimed hustler said: ““Kwani hawa watu wana tuambia saa hii stori mingi hatuwajui, si tunawajua?. Ni watu ya kubomoa, kama hawa bomoi chama, wana bomoa  nyumba, kama hawa bomoi nyumba wana ngoa reli, kama hawa ngoi reli, wana tenganisha marafiki….. sasa hii watu ambao tuna waelewa we are entertaining them for what purpose.”
