Former Gatanga MP and 2013 presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth says President Uhuru Kenyatta gave the Jubilee Party 80 percent of the total presidential votes in 2017 and that DP Ruto ought to stop chest-thumping, claiming how he single-handedly helped Uhuru Kenyatta form government.
”Mtu amekuja akaleta 20 percent ya vote anajipiga kifua amesaidia. Ndio, lakini pia alisaidiwa na yule alileta 80 percent. Tunajua katika uchaguzi uliopita, Rais Uhuru alileta 80 percent,” Kenneth said in Muranga at a meeting with locals.
On Tuesday while speaking in Kakamega county, Deputy President William Ruto warned his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, against de-linking him from the successes of the Jubilee government, stressing he played a very huge role in his election as Head of State and subsequent formation of Jubilee government.
”You cannot deny me as Deputy President the credit in the many things we’ve achieved as a government. It is not going to happen, my friends. Kenya does not belong to three or four people or few families…enough is enough, we will not allow you to impose a puppet on the people of Kenya. They are obsessed with managing their succession but I want to tell them that we are ready for that contest my friends, bring it on. Tuko tayari kabisa,” DP Ruto said on his tour of the county.
