Kenya’s deputy president William Ruto spent two hours late last week interacting with Kenyans as he answered questions directed at him via Twitter.
Ruto responded to questions and comments from Twitter users on the Jubilee’s government first year in office.
A Tweet from Kenya’s official State House Twitter handle read: “One year of Jubilee Government – Tweet any question to DP @WilliamsRuto use #GOKInteracts.”
The deputy president responded to thousands of questions from citizens and the media on pertinent governance issues using the hashtag #GOKInteracts.
Ruto had time to crack jokes and discuss the welfare of his favourite football team, though the conversation was often heated.
