Deputy president William Ruto has urged leaders to practice humility and deliver on their mandate.
Speaking in Athi River earlier today, the DP asked elected leaders to refrain from name calling and instead work for the Kenyan people.
“We were given the blessing of leading different sectors. I implore you to use that opportunity to look for ways of uniting Kenyans while steering Kenya towards development.
“Let us come together without thinking about our respective parties. Mostly, those leaders under Jubilee, let us come together and work on our manifesto on big four agenda,” the DP said.
He maintained that it was time to revive the economy now that the COVID-19 curve was slowly flattening.
“Priority right now is business. The youths have lost jobs, businesses have stalled. Please let us ensure that out priority is to revive the economy so that we can unify Kenyans,” he said.
This comes after a close ally of the DP and Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Environment CS Keriako Tobiko resorted to name calling.
Tobiko referred the second in command as a mere clerk in the government that serves at the pleasure of the president.
“Murkomen must have some manners….. He has become so vocal insulting other leaders including the president. He must be told to man up and have some manners. Even his boss who happens to be deputy president is the clerk to the president,” Tobiko said.
An irate Murkomen in turn said the minister was an “idiot” who should respect the DP.
“We have a CS who is mentally deranged.Just because of one tweet he has exploded&now promising to revenge against me&my father. Never mine the facts he will find some crime somewhere in the books.Just imagine this idiot was once our DPP!From Embobut to Tobiko I say come baby come!”
The marriage between Uhuru Kenyatta and Ruto is seemingly on its last days.
