Former Mukurweini Member of Parliament Kabando wa Kabando has told deputy president William Ruto to expect tough treatment from President Uhuru Kenyatta.
This comes barely a day after the Deputy President was barred from flying to the neighboring country Uganda after he was made to wait for more than five hours at the airport’s VIP lounge.
On Wednesday, August 4, the ex-Mukurweini MP Kabando -who in June claimed that Uhuru did not win the 2017 presidential election- took to Twitter saying the Head of State had a hand in Ruto’s aborted trip to Uganda.
“It is wrong to buck-pass or blame others for Ruto’s travel debacle. Truth is that President Uhuru has decided to ‘DEAL’ with Deputy President,
“It’s going to get uglier. Ruto must brace for tougher rougher times ahead,” he warned.
It is understood that President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy’s relationship has waned significantly since after the famous handshake between Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga in early 2018.
Many observers and political pundits link Uhuru’s shaky relationship with Ruto to the famous 2018 handshake.
In his latest media interview on Inooro TV, the second in command revealed that he had been warned against carrying out his duties as Uhuru’s deputy for the better part of Jubilee’s second term.
“I was told to stay away and there are others to help the president including NASA people who instead came to sabotage our plans,” Ruto said.
Before that, Ruto had admitted to having been humiliated in the second term of the Jubilee party regime and vowed to not allow the same happen to his deputy president should he become president.
