The race to Statehouse in 2022 keeps getting interesting as each day passes by.
The government or rather the system is trying its best to curtail the powers of Deputy President William Ruto who is seen as the best candidate to clinch power in the next general elections.
Yesterday, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju accused Ruto of being a liar and a manipulator. He further accused him of being a selfish and wealthy politician exploiting the poor through his Hustler movement.
Tuju brought into the limelight claims that President Uhuru was forced to appoint Ruto’s allies to the cabinet in order to accommodate his interest at the expense of other communities.
The Cabinet Secretary without portfolio said it was an open political secret that in Jubilee’s first term Government, the DP possessed some political blackmail stock options that he used to his great personal advantage.
This came amidst an exchange between Ruto and Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i who last week gave a list of the huge number of police officers deployed to protect him and his vast wealth. The revelation followed an outcry over changes in Ruto’s security detail.
Meanwhile here are the stories making headlines on Opera News today:
