Good Morning Kenyans.
It is the second week of the country and the political situation feels like a telenovela series, with new drama and plot twists every single day.
Deputy President William Ruto set tongues wagging after his recent remarks in the United Kingdom.
Ruto without fear, laid bare the details of how he was silently sidelined by President Uhuru Kenyatta after his re-election in 2017.
The second in command revealed that Uhuru ran the government single handedly in his second term, and that he had no say in the leaders appointed to help the president.
He further pointed out that those appointed by the fourth president of the country failed miserably.
The remarks by the UDA party leader did not sit well with some Kenyans, as many felt that he had gone against the code of conduct a deputy president should uphold.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega came out gun blazing over the matter and warned DP Ruto that he could be impeached.
This brings up the big question, should Ruto be impeached over his remarks abroad?
