President Uhuru Kenyatta has dared Deputy President William Ruto to quit the government if he was unsatisfied with its policies and allow him to discharge his mandate to the people of Kenya in peace.
In an engagement with Kenyan media editors at State House on Monday, the President challenged his deputy to take the bold step instead of criticising his government and at the same time taking credit for its development projects.
“The honourable thing is that if you are not happy is you step aside and allow those who want to move on, to move on. So that you can also take your agenda to the people. This is what happens in any normal democracy. You can’t have your cake and eat it,” President Uhuru said.
The President also dismissed claims that his meetings with ODM leader Raila Odinga and OKA leader at Mombasa State House are about getting a suitable presidential candidate who will defeat DP Ruto.
