Deputy President William Ruto has insisted that there are no rifts between him and President Kenyatta as some reports suggest.
Ruto, who spoke during a fundraiser at Giakanja Boys Secondary School in Nyeri on Friday, maintained that his relationship with Kenyatta is still intact and that the two are inseparable. He noted that those waiting for the ruling Jubilee party to fall were in for a rude shock.
"Uhuru and I are like a car and its battery, we cannot leave each other," said Ruto, adding that the Jubilee Party is also solid.
"Jubilee is solid, let no one lie to you with stories. We know where we are and where we are going."
Ruto’s sentiments appear to be the opposite of the recent political happenings where the Jubilee Party is clearly split into two with one faction supporting Kenyatta and the other aligning itself with Ruto.
Leaders who back Kenyatta operate under a movement dubbed ‘Kieleweke’ while those for DP Ruto call themselves team ‘Tangatanga.’
