Saturday May 23, 2020 – The war between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, has degenerated into something else with the President keen on hurting the DP even more.
Before Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki was unceremoniously ousted from the senior Senate seat, Uhuru reportedly met 51 Senators allied to him and Orange Democratic Movement leader, Raila Odinga, at State House, Nairobi.
According to sources, Uhuru allegedly bribed Senators to kick Kindiki, who is Ruto’s man, out of the Senate.
The President promised to revive the Senators’ oversight kitty which was slashed in June 2019.
The National Assembly quashed Ksh 500 million which was meant for a Senate County oversight kitty, dealing a blow to the Senators’ quest to monitor the expenditures of regional Governments.
A source further hinted that Uhuru asked former Prime Minister, Raila Odinga’s team to choose a Deputy Speaker to cement their new found friendship, something that may hurt the DP to the core.
