The path of The Deputy President William Ruto of ascending to power is arguably the most rocky path one could wish to trek on.
Apart from The Mt. Kenya Elders openly stating their dis-contention with the DP Ruto over his succession plan, a section of President Uhuru Kenyatta Cabinet Secretaries have joined the league of undermining DP Ruto.
The secret meeting which was termed as life threatening to the Deputy President has been stopped through the intervention of the Director of Criminal Investigation George Kinoti.
CSs James Macharia (Transport), Joseph Mucheru (ICT), Sicily Kariuki (Health), and Peter Munya (Trade) are among a host of top government officials expected to record statements at the DCI.
Last week, it emerged that operatives in Harambee House and others who ran President Uhuru Kenyatta’s campaign are said to be holding meetings to counter Ruto’s wave in Mt Kenya.
It is said that the operatives have brought on board some Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries and heads of state corporations.
The CSs are alleged to have been hosting numerous meetings secretly with one main agenda of just making sure Dr Ruto does become President.
The Mt. Kenya leaders were among the first people to betray Ruto after hosting a meeting in Nyeri.
“The Kikuyu vote will not be brokered for money by ‘tukunias’.
No one carries a vote for another so those ‘promising’ others the votes of the region, we know you; and you aren’t the first ‘tukunias’ in the history of the Kikuyu people, The elders stated.
This is a direct blow to Ruto who is seeking endorsement and support from the region. Former Jubilee Vice Chair David Murathe has been vibrant on his plot to block Ruto from ascending to power. Over the weekend he actually called him thief.
Moreover, Raphael Tuju,who is also a Cabinet Secretary without portfolio and also Jubilee Secretary General, is staring at an ouster following his leaked audio clip with MP George Nyanja who were heard threatening to fix Ruto capitalizing on the Kiambaa Church Massacre.
