Deputy President(DP) William Ruto, on Wednesday morning, put The Star Newspaper on the spot over a story on their cover page.

Ruto referred to The Star’s cover story that was titled ‘Ruto Allies Plot to Scuttle Uhuru-Raila Referendum’, as fake news.

According to the Deputy President, it was uncouth of newspapers, to use his name to sell stories even when he was not involved in the said news.

He, therefore, took to his twitter account, where he expressed his displeasure with the said newspaper.

“This is what constitutes fake news. I know it is difficult but newspapers should try selling without the ‘Ruto’ mention. Please! Tafadhali woiye!(Kindly please),” posted Ruto.

Taking to Twitter, DP Ruto dismissed the story and explained that he had not gone to receive President Uhuru Kenyatta at the airport when he jetted in.

“I was nowhere near JKIA. I am not surprised that some media houses and their owners are this desperate. Tuwasamehe tu (Lets forgive them)!!” Ruto posted on his Twitter.

The Standard, later on, apologised to the DP for the story.
