As political temperatures continue to rise in the country ahead of 2022 general elections, several leaders both allied to president uhuru kenyatta and Raila Odinga have been seen pushing for the resignation of deputy president Dr. William Ruto citing not being loyal to his boss


Their sentiments have also been backed by former premier saying that it is called fir since he don’t work together with thr President

“Ruto is supposed to be the President’s assistant, but he is missing in action. I don’t know who is side-lining who. If somebody chooses to isolate himself, he should not blame other people.”

Raila insists he has remained loyal to a unity pact with President Uhuru Kenyatta that was sealed with a firm handshake on March 9, 2018. This after piling pressure on the Government through a series of unorthodox manoeuvres.

In this new-found space, Raila insists he is still the same man he has always been. He insists he is still speaking truth to power. He insists he is still holding firm to the ideals that have been close to him over the past four decades of his involvement in politics.

Two years ago, communication between Raila and Uhuru had broken down. A hotly contested election in 2017 and his subsequent defeat put him on a collision path with the State. A series of events aimed at antagonising the Government culminated in a public swearing-in as the self-proclaimed ‘people’s president’.

“I have nothing personal against Mr Ruto,” he insists. But he pulls no punches when he talks about a man who was solidly in his corner 13 years ago when a disputed presidential election plunged the country into chaos.

While Ruto’s allies say he has been relegated to watching State activities from the benches, Raila insists that the DP is briefed on the goings-on in the country.

Ruto is part of the handshake. He has been consulted on what is happening. Everyone has been involved.

“If I felt frustrated and side-lined, I would take a walk. Jaramogi was a vice-president and when he found it untenable to stay in government, he stepped aside,” Raila said.

The two leaders had a chance meeting on October 3 during the Kip Keino Classic athletic event at the Nyayo National Stadium. It was a cordial affair with both men seated side by side. As Raila and Ruto watched the runners tear up the track, two different races with a presidency as the main prize must have occupied their minds.
