Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen who is also a close ally of the Deputy President William Ruto has alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta has betrayed DP Ruto.
Speaking during an interview with Citizen TV program JKL, Murkomen blamed President Uhuru Kenyatta for the current problems that his DP Ruto and Jubilee party is facing.
Murkomen had raised a number of issues that he alleged that President Uhuru Kenyatta has done to William Ruto and blamed the him for their marriage woes.
“What became of Uhuru Kenyatta that today he chased William Ruto from a house in Mombasa, that it is the same Uhuru Kenyatta who is arresting everybody who is associated with the Deputy President, the same Uhuru Kenyatta who have not given the Deputy President any responsibility neither does he invite him for important meetings in the name of using Covid-19 as an excuse,” Murkomen stated.
Murkomen had raised a number of good things that he claims that DP Ruto has done to President Kenyatta and sought an answer as to why Uhuru cannot forgive Ruto.
“William Ruto decided to support Uhuru Kenyatta in three elections and even way before in 2002, What is that one sin that if I met the president today, I will look at him eye to eye and ask him?, what is that one simple mistake that washes away all the good things that William Ruto did to him from 2002 to winning the first election, to the second election, to a rerun? Is it really worth the President of Kenya? How does he expect us to believe in anything from him when people are being persecuted for being associated with the DP?” he paused.
Murkomen had criticized DP Ruto’s supporters who he accused of blaming ODM Leader Raila Odinga for what he termed as the direct mistakes of President Uhuru.
“I don’t want in this debate to blame Raila Odinga. Raila is a politician who, like any other Opposition leader will look for an opportunity to bring down their competitors.”
“Let us this stop nonsense, as Jubilee Supporters, of using Raila Odinga as the bogeyman. The problems facing William Ruto have nothing to do with Raila, they have everything to do with Uhuru who personally planned to get someone else to countermand his deputy,” stated Murkomen.
