Monday, March 14, 2022 – Deputy President William Ruto has accused his boss, President Uhuru Kenyatta, of insulting the people who stood with him at the most difficult time.
Speaking during a rally at Thika Stadium on Sunday, March 13th, the UDA leader wondered why the Head of State was persecuting people who helped him win the presidential seat.
“When you were looking for somebody to walk with during the 2013 elections while going through tough times over the ICC case, I was there but for four-and-a-half years you have made us suffer,”“The same people you (President Uhuru Kenyatta) are now calling thieves and other names are the ones who stood with you morally and through prayers when you were facing a very difficult time.”
“We are the same people who campaigned for you in 2013 and 2017,” William Ruto said.
Ruto further accused Uhuru of going to bed with his political nemesis, ODM leader Raila Odinga,
He said that Uhuru chose Raila specifically to reduce his chances of ascending to the Presidency in the August 9th, General Election.
“When Uhuru was facing ICC charges it’s only I who stood with him, Raila was not there for him,” he said.
Ruto further criticized Uhuru for disrespecting church leaders who prayed for him in 2013, when the two were facing crimes against humanity charges at the ICC.
“Tafadhali rais usiite majina viongozi wetu wa makanisa, hao ndio walituombea tukienda Hague (Please president don’t name our church leaders, they are the ones who prayed for us we went to The Hague),” Ruto added.
