Barrack Muluka: Ruto held Uhuru hostage during his first term

Just days after Economist David Ndii, who is also DP Ruto’s economic advisor within the Hustler’s Movement, publicly declared that despite him being in Ruto’s camp he wasn’t convinced that the DP is determined to fight corruption, now another leading member of the team has come out to make an indicting statement against the DP. Ruto’s communications advisor Barrack Muluka, perhaps emboldened by David Ndii’s daring statement, has openly declared that indeed the deputy president held his president, Uhuru Kenyatta hostage, during the entire duration of Jubilee’s first term.


Muluka was speaking on Citizen TV’s primetime political show, Newsnight, which was hosted by Waihiga Mwaura. Alongside Muluka was professor Herman Manyora.


While expounding on the position in which the President finds himself, Muluka gave a brief analysis of Uhuru Kenyatta’s presidency. He said that currently Uhuru finds himself in a tight spot since he is now beholden to the Orange Democratic Movement party leader Raila Odinga who has held him hostage, and has him acting to his whims.

However, before this, Muluka said that during Uhuru’s first term, he was also held hostage by his deputy. He went ahead to recall the relay analogy that Uhuru gave at Bomas, and explained that the president narrated the relay analogy to mean that his deputy was scrambling to snatch the baton from him within his 400m instead of waiting at the finish line.

What is worth noting is that this specific accusation is quite popular among the Kieleweke wing of Jubilee which is loyal to the president to a fault, and accuses his deputy of insubordination.

In his resignation notice to Mudavadi last year on August 12, Muluka said ANC needs a fresh start ahead of 2022.

“I doubt that I could add more value to what I have done so far. Moreover, it is now fitting that the space around you should be decongested. This will allow you to make critical decisions on the population and leadership of the party under the new constitution,” he said.
