Monday May 18, 2020 – Deputy President William Ruto reportedly convened a crisis meeting over the weekend to address the onslaught against his foremost allies by none other than his friend, President Uhuru Kenyatta.
According to reports, Ruto reportedly met with his allies and urged them to stay put and let their rivals have a field day noting that it was important to sit back and strategise.
“In war, you don’t show your enemies all the arsenal; you will lose.”
“You must retreat and study how far they can go and strategise on how to counter,” a source in attendance quoted the DP.
“This is just the beginning.”
“It’s too early for them to celebrate,” Ruto stated in the closely guarded meeting.
Sources further revealed that the DP disclosed that he was directing his energies towards dispensing his constitutional duties and will not be tricked into beefing with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“I know they are after me.”
“I will stay put and keep my silence.”
“This purge against my allies is targeted at forcing me to quit.”
“For now, I will not engage or respond.”
“I will continue serving needy Kenyans during this Covid-19 pandemic.”
“This is more pressing and urgent,” a lawmaker who attended the meeting claimed the DP had stated.
“Already, people are asking where is the DP? I am here, discharging my constitutional duty and I will not stop now,” he added.
In the meeting, the attendees also contemplated asking Ruto’s allies targeted for ouster in the National Assembly and the Senate to quit and disarm the President Uhuru Kenyatta-led machine.
Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Susan Kihika have already lost their Majority Leader and Minority Whip roles respectively.
