DP Ruto Answers His Boss President Kenyatta Over Resignation Call
DP Ruto accused President Kenyatta of alienating him, yet he stood with him all through when the rest were not ready to be part of him.
Hours after President Uhuru Kenyatta called upon his Deputy William Ruto to resign, DP Ruto has responded to the call by his boss.
Speaking in response, the DP pointed an accusing finger to the president over what he referred to as double speaking.
Speaking at Kiambaa where he led a fund-drive by bodaboda operators, Ruto took time to recall the gold old days when he and Kenyatta spoke in one voice.
DP Ruto noted how he stood with President Kenyatta when the head of state really needed a friend next to him. "When Uhuru needed a friend to stand with him when no one else wanted to support him...I was the one who did," recalled DP Ruto.
DP Ruto insisted that he remained the suitable candidate to succeed President Kenyatta in 2022 so that he could finish the good work they began together.
Earlier today, President Kenyatta launched an attack on his deputy by challenging him to step aside, if he felt he could not work with the government.
President Kenyatta accused DP Ruto of using divisive politics to divide Kenyans for his own selfish gains. "Unakuja unasema kwa mdomo moja serikali ni mbaya alafu kwa mdomo mwingine ati tumefanya kama serikali..." wondered President Kenyatta.
