The two who have bitterly fallen out with each other sat at different tables and avoided eye contact during the Thursday, May 26, National Prayer breakfast event held at the Safari Park Hotel.
Unlike it has been in the past when the two senior-most political leaders shared a table, the Kenya Kwanza presidential flag bearer William Ruto sat with National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi.
The Head of State on his part sat with Chief Justice Martha Koome and Attorney General Kihara Kariuki.
The Azimio la Umoja- One Kenya coalition party flag bearer Raila Odinga whose name was on the official program as one of the invited guests however skipped the event.
Uhuru and Ruto fell out in 2018 after the famous handshake between the Head of State and the then opposition leader Raila Odinga.
However, during the National Prayer Breakfast in 2021, the pair appeared to put aside their political differences as they shared hearty laughs and gestures rekindling their former bromance witnessed in their first term.
“Instead of some leaders strategizing on how to offer solutions, they go to incite citizens to ask Uhuru. You call yourself a leader and what number (in superiority) are you? You should have let me look for someone to help me. You know this is not anyone’s problem, where are you when I need you?” President Uhuru said.
Ruto dared President Uhuru to come clean and tell Kenyans the truth on what duties he has failed to discharge that could warrant his resignation.
“And I dare them if there is one responsibility that I have been assigned and that I have not discharged, let them tell the people of Kenya, let them not engage in rumors and nonsense,” Ruto dared President Uhuru.
