There was drama on Wednesday night at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) during an alleged clash between Deputy President William Ruto and Interior PS Karanja Kibicho.
For about 15 minutes, the DP, who was seemingly angry, confronted the PS on claims that he instructed county commissioners and and Police Commanders to shun his functions and not give him security.
Sources who spoke to the People Daily revealed that Ruto asked the PS to keep to his lane.
He further claimed that Kibicho used his office to control administrators in an effort to frustrate the DP’s 2022 Presidential bid.
The drama reportedly began immediately the DP arrived at the airport, where he had gone to receive President Uhuru Kenyatta from his Rwanda visit. He went straight to Kibicho after spotting him.
“Everyone present including the service commanders were taken by surprise. Nobody uttered a word as the lecture by the visibly angry Ruto continued,” narrated the source.
The DP reportedly mentioned his Turkana visit where the County Commissioner failed to attend claiming that he had received instructions not to show up from the PS.
In mid-April, Nyeri county administration pulled out its security from his church function.
Seems like the DP’s fight with PS Karanja Kibicho is bringing problems in government.
