Friday June 5, 2020 – President Uhuru Kenyatta must be respected, former Bomet Governor, Isaac Ruto, has said.
In an interview with a local daily, Ruto, who is also the Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader, said that he supports the ongoing purge within Jubilee claiming that the changes were long overdue.
Ruto claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta could not run a Government with an undisciplined Parliament led by his deputy, William Ruto.
President Uhuru has in the last two weeks cracked the whip on the leadership of the Senate and the National Assembly.
Two weeks ago, he fired Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and his Nakuru counterpart, Susan Kihika, as Majority Leader and Majority Whip in the house.
The Jubilee party also engineered the ouster of former Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindi.
Ruto said the President did the right thing by removing those who were frustrating his agenda to Kenyans.
