Deputy President William Ruto on Wednesday, April 15, 2021 claimed that he had been humiliated by the Jubilee Government that is led by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
During an interview on Citizen TV, Ruto stated that very many Deputy Presidents are fought by people close to the sitting President, adding that if he got a chance to be president, he would not do the same to his own DP.
“That is an unfortunate situation. Given an opportunity, I will not allow my DP to be humiliated the way former DPs have been humiliated and the way I have been humiliated. I will not allow,” the DP declared.During the second term as the DP, Ruto disclosed that there were individuals who had tried to humiliate him by denying him access to the jubilee headquarters or cutting his budget, all in a bid to make him resign.
“There are people who believe they can push me to resign but I want to remind them that I was elected. I am not going to give them the opportunity to celebrate their effort to push me out of government,” Ruto said.
The second in command maintained that he had been respectful to President Uhuru Kenyatta throughout their term.
“I asked the president to produce information showing what I had done in private and in public to disrespect him or to elevated myself beyond what my duties are and the president was very candid with me, he told me there is no such information.
The director of intelligence was there and he also did not produce any information on the same,” DP Ruto stated.
