Deputy President William Ruto yesterday evening opened up on his failed bromance with his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta since the famous March 2018 handshake with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Dr. Ruto who has been sidelined in the running of a number of Government affairs since then said that his relationship with his boss was not subject for discussion.
Speaking with Citizen Tv’s Joe Ageyo during a live interview the second in command said that he could not discuss the conduct of his boss in public, adding that he respected president Kenyatta while dismissing allegations that his roles in the government had diminished.
“The president has never told anybody in private or in public that I have absconded duty neither have I complained that I have a problem with him. The relationship between the president and I is not a subject of any discussion. He is my boss and you never discuss your boss,” said Dr. Ruto.
Speaking on why he absconded a number of government functions, the DP said that he was careful on them, and had valid reasons for doing so adding that he notified the organizers prior.
“There were valid reasons why I wasn’t in those functions. I am very careful when it comes to the attendance of my duties…you can be absent with a reason,” Ruto said.
This comes after the DP had in August explained what ended the bromance with his boss President Uhuru Kenyatta.
“My life is easy…You have not heard me complain… The situation between the president and myself is agreed upon…In Jubilee’s first term, it was Uhuruto… In the second term, we want to build a legacy for the president…I am the DP and I know my place,” he contended.
