Saturday April 6, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto has advised President Uhuru Kenyatta to do away with the handshake, saying his unity with Raila Odinga was doing more harm to Jubilee than good.
Speaking in Isiolo County, Ruto told Raila to first put his house in order before purporting to advise the Government on how it should run its affairs.
According to the DP, the Opposition faction is disorganized and cannot advise the ruling Jubilee party on how to run the country.
He observed the Opposition had failed to put its house in order and it was ironical for leaders from the outfit to consistently point out the Government’s failure in the name of fighting corruption.
He said the Raila Odinga led unit had failed in its role to keep the Government on check and had no moral authority to lecture the leading party on how to run the country’s affairs.
“I want to urge all Jubilee leaders not to be distracted by people who have failed to do their job in the first place. Utterances of some leaders on the fight on graft are shallow and baseless. Investigative and prosecution matters alongside judicial issues should be left to relevant institutions,” said Ruto.
“Opposition leaders don’t have moral authority to counsel Jubilee on leadership at a time their house is unstable. They need to fix the small matter of putting their parties together before trying to lecture a national party,” he added.
