President Uhuru Kenyatta who co-formed the Jubilee government with William Ruto will not be defending his seat after serving his two-term constitutional limits.
When he was elected President of Kenya in the 2013 and 2017 elections, Uhuru’s political bosom buddy was William Ruto, and was expected that the first in command would support him for the country’s top seat in the 2022 polls.
However, the outgoing president whipped up political hotheads to rise up against his former political ally turned foe going by the way he endorsed former rival, Raila Odinga.
Speaking in Eldoret town on Monday, August 1, Deputy President William Ruto criticized President Uhuru Kenyatta for endorsing Raila Odinga’s State House bid in the August 9, General Election.
The UDA presidential candidate said the Head of State has fooled the more than 10 million Kenyans who voted for the Jubilee administration in the 2013 and 2017 presidential elections.
“Yaani sisi watu million 10 tumesimama na wewe 2013, 2017 tumeunda serikali… umetupima sisi wote ukaona hatutoshi mpaka unaenda kukodisha mtu ya kitendawili? hapana hiyo haiwezekani,” Ruto
