President Uhuru Kenyatta’s camp in the senate have threatened to evict deputy President William Ruto from his official residence in Karen as well as denied perks and benefits that come with his position.
The “renovations,” according to sources close to a local daily, are in preparation for the next occupant of the DP’s office.
Citing Ruto’s recent comments on the “artificial fuel crisis” in which the DP linked the ongoing shortage to the works of “cartels and State barons”, Uhuru’s men claim the Jubilee government, which Ruto helped form in 2013 and 2017, has had enough of his criticism and that it is time he vacates his Karen residence and foregoes the perks and benefits that come with his position.
According to DP’s critics, he should bolt out of Government and take up full responsibility as opposition chief alongside his counterparts in the Kenya Kwanza brigade.
“There are individuals in this country who are trying to get mileage out of small crises that we have thinking they are not part of the Government when they are actually at the helm earning salaries and enjoying privileges,” Senate Deputy Main the Senate Senator Fatuma Dullo said.
Her sentiments were echoed by Nominated Senator Farhiya Ali, who said she finds it strange that somebody (Ruto) would want to take perks and benefits that come with his position but could not want to take responsibility for the failures and successes of the same government.
