Wednesday October 3, 2018 - President Uhuru Kenyatta has been left in dilemma in the renewed vicious fight between Deputy President William Ruto and NASA leader, Raila Odinga.
On one hand, Uhuru needs Raila Odinga to calm down the country’s political temperatures and give him a conducive environment to execute his Big 4 legacy and on the other hand, he requires Ruto’s backing to successfully implement the Government’s policies as well as the Jubilee Party manifesto.
Over the weekend, Ruto renewed attacks on Raila, accusing him of wrecking Jubilee Party though the handshake and plotting to oust him out of the party.
“We know what the handshake is but we are very clear about what it is not so don’t bring confusion.”
“The handshake is not a license to bring confusion and propaganda and conman-ship into our (Jubilee) party,” Ruto said.
Ruto’s remarks caused uproar among politicians allied to Raila Odinga, warning the DP to refrain from such utterances.
“How do you call Raila Odinga a conman? Conman-ship gani? Wewe una nini ya kuconiwa kwanza?” asked Mombasa Governor, Ali Hasan Joho.
