Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu has made a startling revelation on the depth of division between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto. In his revelation, the firebrand legislator says President Uhuru no longer trusts Ruto with fundraiser money, instead the president usually sends his donations through trusted allies but not Ruto. MP Wambugu gave a series of functions attended by the DP, where instead of him (Ruto) handing over President Uhuru’s contributions, the head of state chose politicians in the Kieleweke wing of Jubilee to represent him.
” On 6th December 2019 Hon Sabina Chege presented President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cash contribution at a function that Deputy President William Ruto was present at, in Maragua; Muranga County,” the MP said.
”Today 7th January 2020 Hon Kanini Kega presented President Uhuru Kenyatta’s cash contribution at a function that Deputy President William Ruto was at, in Mathira; Nyeri County,” he added.
From these instances, the MP revealed President Uhuru no longer sends his donations through DP Ruto even though Ruto usually hands in cash claiming to be from be from Uhuru Kenyatta.
”Clearly the President is not sending his Deputy President with contributions to functions (anymore).But the DP is always saying he has been sent by the President with a cash contribution whenever he has a Harambee in Mt Kenya (exclusively),” he said.
