President Uhuru Kenyatta has made it clear that nothing will stop him from his plans to deliver what he promised Kenyans before his term ends.
The president reiterated that he would do what it takes, even if it means making tough choices of changes in Jubilee party.
“I have been pleading with people the whole of 2019… Well, I don’t have that much time to go. I can’t continue pleading… I want people who are not going to fight the agenda I laid out and made to Kenyans. And in a democracy, if you feel you are not happy with the way the leader is going then…” Uhuru told the Nation during an interview at State House, on 26th May.
The changes started in the Senate with the ouster of Kindiki Kithure as deputy speaker, Kipchumba Murkomen as majority leader and Susan Kihika as the chief whip.
To some people, these changes were aimed at the Deputy President William Ruto as the affected are seen as his allies.
Senator Murkomen, in an interview with the Nation, even accused some government officials of disrespecting DP Ruto.
“There is no justification for the disrespect shown to the DP, considering his consistent support for the President and how he fought to have this government established,” he said.
Clearly, both factions are now accusing each other of betrayal. Those supporting DP Ruto accuse the president and his team of tuning against them and now working with individuals outside Jubilee.
On the other hand, the president’s men accuse DP Ruto and his allies of betrayal for derailing Jubilee’s agenda, disrespecting the president and focusing on 2022 elections.
