During campaigns politicians rarely adhere to the natural principles of communication prompting speakers to employ deliberate impolite language with one sole agenda; to demean or disparage “the foe”. Phenomena of impoliteness in Kenya political context during presidential campaigns has always been seen presenting itself back to back if presidential campaigns five months before 2007 and 2013 elections are analyzed by narrowing down to William Ruto’s utterances in two major Kenya’s local dailies namely The Daily Nation and The standard.
