Murathe Maintains That Ruto Will See Statehouse In Viusasa

Jubilee vice chairman David Murathe has reiterated that deputy president William Samoie Ruto will not see the doors of statehouse anytime soon.

Murathe reiterated the sentiments of president Uhuru Kenyatta that they would not allow thieves (a term indirectly used to attack William Ruto) to take power.

“We have unanimously agreed that we won’t leave power to a thief.” Wrote the Jubilee Vice Chairman.

Murathe made these sentiments a few minutes after attending a Jubilee Press conference presided by secretary general Raphael Tuju. Mr. Tuju equally emphasized president Uhuru’s sentiments that they would not leave the country in the hands of thieves.

While addressing a crowd at Ruiru on Friday, October 29, The head of state urged locals not to vote for thieves in the coming elections.

He told the people to be very careful with the people they vote for as some of them have plans of stealing from the public. Thus, he asked them to elect leaders who would further his legacy and that of former president Mwai Kibaki.

The president who was speaking in his local language also urged the public to tone down at a time when political temperatures were increasing.

However, these sentiments did not augur well with allies of the deputy president such as Aden Duale who told off the president over the “don’t elect thieves” remarks.

Speaking in Kajiado during a tour to popularize UDA’s agenda and the hustler movement, Garissa township Member of Parliament Aden Duale said that president Kenyatta’s remarks were demeaning to voters who voted for the president and Ruto in 2013 and 2017 respectively.

“You are telling us the eight million jubilee supporters in your own leadership are full of conmen and crooks and thieves. That is an insult to the Jubilee family and your supporters,” stated Duale.

As a result, he urged President Kenyatta to use his instruments of power in identifying those whom he thinks are thieves instead of addressing the issue in public rallies.

“You have the instrument of power. The National Intelligence Service falls under you, you have the EACC, you have the DCI, you have the Auditor General. Use those and tell the country. Be specific. A leader must talk with specificity,” Duale said.

The meeting was attended by UDA members as well as the Deputy President.
