Thursday, February 24, 2022 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has dismissed his Deputy, William Ruto, as a pathological liar for claiming he was not aware of the 2018 handshake between him and ODM Leader Raila Odinga.
Speaking at the Sagana III meeting yesterday, Uhuru stated that Ruto was the last person to be informed of the details of the handshake with Raila, but the DP persuaded him not to go ahead with the plan.
He defended himself against criticism from leaders allied to Ruto, insisting that the DP was informed of the discussions between him and Raila.
“On the day I met Raila for the handshake, the last person I spoke to before heading to Harambee House was my deputy and I informed him why I was uniting with the former Prime Minister even as he tried to convince me otherwise.
“For him to claim I lied and I betrayed him, that is a straight lie,” he stated.
He also defended his decision to shake hands with Raila, stating that the country was headed in the wrong direction after the disputed presidential election.
“Ruto had been telling me to stand firm and not share the government with Raila because we had the state machinery.”
“But my gate and his are heavily guarded, the people who were suffering did not have guards, their kiosks were being burnt down in Kawangware.
“I decided I had to reach out and I kept him in the loop,” Uhuru stated.
Additionally, he maintained his support for Azimio La Umoja and the candidature of Raila, saying the ODM boss was better placed to take over the reins of power from him.
