Deputy President William Ruto was among those who came out to condemn the act. Speaking during his rally in Kirinyaga county, Ruto accused Raila over the incident.

“I hear today we had a billboard like this one for Anne Waiguru in Kisumu but Mr. Kitendawili has vandalized it. You have sworn yourself in, uprooted the railway, thrown stones, and now vandalize a mere billboard, really?…hawa watu ni bure kabisa, I urge Raila to accept that there is competition in Kenya,” said Ruto in Kirinyaga on Sunday.
