Monday June 1, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta reportedly met with his Deputy, William Ruto, on Saturday in a seven-hour meeting in State House.
The meeting comes in the wake of wrangles and division that have recently rocked the Jubilee Party, leading to the purge against Ruto’s key allies.
State House Spokesperson, Kanze Dena, declined to comment about the meeting while Ruto’s spokesperson, Emmanuel Tallam, played cagey with information on the alleged meeting.
“I am not aware of that meeting.”
“If there was one, it must be one of those regular ones between the President and his deputy,” Tallam stated.
Ruto has since gone silent, hatching a laid back approach in his cold war with Kenyatta.
A series of meetings between him and close allies revealed that he warned them against rattling Kenyatta, who has stated that he will only work with those who support his agenda.
The DP’s close ally and Kapsaret MP, Oscar Sudi, shed light on Ruto’s seven-hour meeting with Kenyatta, saying that the two engaged each other from morning to evening.
“We know there are those who do not want to hear that the two meet, they rejoice in the perceived sour relationship.”
“The two met, they have a mandate to deliver and they must work together, I am not, however privy to what they discussed,” Sudi stated.
Uhuru also issued a statement about the progress of Jubilee Party, after a month-long purge against DP Ruto’s allies which saw the ouster of Senator Kipchumba Murkomen (Elgeyo Marakwet) as Senate Majority and Senator Kithure Kindiki (Tharaka-Nithi) as Senate Deputy Speaker.
