Good morning Kenyans.
We are almost close to the end of a week that has been marred with drama, change of heart and new stands in the political world.
President Uhuru Kenyatta finally broke his silence on the ongoing ‘house cleaning’ exercise in Jubilee party.
Uhuru remarked that the changes were necessary after he grew tired of giving more chances to defiant people.
The Head of State noted that his agenda could not thrive if the people ousted remained in the position.
The president reiterated that he won’t loosen his grip on the purge as the recent changes were just the beginning.
He also sent a warning shot to Deputy President William Ruto and his camp over 2022 campaigns.
The latest remarks by Uhuru showed that his relationship with Ruto is no longer on the rocks but completely over.
The sentiments by the son of the Late Mzee Jomo Kenyatta leaves one to wonder, is the purge about the Big 4 agenda or is it more of a political statement by Uhuru to Ruto?

Businessman Pleads With DP Ruto to Settle Ksh1.4M Debt Owed by His Hotel
A distraught businessman based in Kilifi has directly appealed to Deputy President William Ruto to settle an alleged debt owed by a hotel associated with the DP.
President Uhuru disclosed that his son had recently flouted the Coronavirus measures put in place.
The Jubilee party leader narrated that the named son resorted to such a behaviour in order to see his girlfriend.
Uhuru has been at the forefront of stating that action needs to be taken on people who knowingly break the law.
In April, the Commander-in-chief expressed that he hoped that Kilifi Deputy Governor Gideon Saburi would be thrown in jail for 10 years.
This brings us to the big question, shouldn’t the same measure be done to his son who like Saburi, risked exposing those around him to the disease?
