Deputy President William Ruto has spoken on what he whispered to President Uhuru Kenyatta on October 26, 2020 during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) launch at the Bomas when the President took a swipe at him for starting early campaigns.
In his speech, President Kenyatta hillariously accused Ruto of having lost focus on the Jubilee agenda and started early campaigns for his 2022 Presidential bid.
“Tulisonga pamoja lakini hapa kati kati ndio sasa 2022 ikaingilIa akasahau yale mengine but nasema tutulize boli.. ” Uhuru said
Speaking to Radio Jambo Today Morning, Dp Ruto revealed that he told the President that he was planning to hand over the leadership of the country to another person other than him (Ruto).
He also said that there was a plan to oppress him after the 2017 General Elections, a plan he says has flopped.
“Kulikuwa na mpango baada ya uchaguzi nihangaishwe nisipate uongozi wowote, wanaanza visingizio. Kama kuna mtu ako na heshima na Rais ni mimi, hawa wote wanaoongea eti nimemkosea heshima ni watu wa siasa ya bure.”
On matters of party politics, Ruto said that he is associating with the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), after being flushed out of the ruling Jubilee Party by “intruders”.
“Mimi kujihusisha na UDA ni kwa sababu ya kukosa hali pale Jubilee. Pale Jubilee, kumetokea kuzungumkuti kikubwa. Walioachiwa na rais kukiendesha hicho chama wamekisambaratisha,” he said
He also revealed that he is “building UDA to become a national party” that he will use to vie for Presidency in 2022.
