Ruto’s Tanga Tanga Allies Tell Uhuru to Stop Blaming DP, Apologise to Them
Deputy President William Ruto’s allies have lashed out at President Uhuru Kenyatta for blaming the DP for being an absentee principal assistant.
On Sunday, May 1, the president did not mince his words while bashing his deputy for what he termed as absenteeism from duty and refusal to resign so that he can get another DP.
The war of words between the two top leaders is now escalating after Ruto’s foot soldiers went for the head of state saying it was his fault that Ruto could not discharge his duties.
Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi said Uhuru should apologise to Ruto’s allies for expelling them from parliament positions and committees and also from the Jubilee Party.
“Let me just advise you, ask forgiveness from your people. Call us and apologise to us and we will listen to you,” Sudi said.
On her part, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika wrote a strongly-worded statement on social media telling Uhuru that his day of reckoning had arrived after he fired Ruto’s allies.
“When you were chest-thumping, firing us left, right and centre and assigning the duties of your principal assistant to your sycophants you forgot the clock was ticking and the buck stops with you! Now carry your failures with the same energy and stop shouting. Too little too late!” she said.
Omange tells Ruto not to entertain disrespect
Senator Millicent Omanga maintained that it is Uhuru who should resign and not the deputy president further urging Ruto to deal with Uhuru fiercely.
The nominated senator who is a die-hard supporter of the second in command said Ruto should stop entertaining any disrespect from his boss and instead counter it pound for pound.
“There comes a time when a man must fiercely defend himself. He has been loyal like a lamb and this has been mistaken for weakness. The redline has been crossed!” she said.
