Deputy President William Ruto has, in the clearest indication yet, admitted that President Uhuru Kenyatta no longer takes his advice over running of government.

Dr Ruto said that after the 2017 General Election, President Kenyatta insulated himself with a new crop of advisers on a myriad of social-economic and political issues in the country including succession battle.

However, Dr Ruto said President Kenyatta remains his best friend “having done many things together”.

He claimed there has been a series of attempts to have him resign as DP including budgetary cuts to his office, disciplinary action targeted at his allies in Jubilee.

The DP said he had asked for evidence where he had disrespected the president.

“It is unfortunate that I have been humiliated as a Deputy President and branded as insubordinating the President. It reached an extent that I had a sitting with the President and the Director General of National Intelligence Service where I demanded for evidence on the same to be produced and there was none,” he said in the no holds barred interview.

“It is unfortunate that this happened and given an opportunity to be President, I would not allow my Deputy to be humiliated.”
