Deputy President William Ruto has accused President Uhuru Kenyatta for the collapse and destruction of Jubilee party.
This comes a few days after Kenyatta’s revelation that he will support one of the National Super Alliance(NASA) leader in the 2022 polls.
Ruto wondered if the destruction and dismembering of Jubilee, a national party, was meant to pave way for support of regional, tribal parties in Nasa.
“Now, with the collapse of Jubilee, isn’t it fair for those who can’t fit in ethnic parties to build UDA as an alternative national party? Or?” he tweeted.
Ruto said that he is ready to go his own political destiny under the United Democratic Alliance(UDA) if indeed the time has come to go call it a day with the President.
He believes the President has betrayed him and those who rallied behind him both in 2013 and 2017 and he has made his frustrations known.
In a meeting with a delegation of leaders from the Ukambani region led by Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Kenyatta openly acknowledged that since he closed ranks with members of the opposition, he had managed to concentrate on fulfilling his promises to Kenyans.
“Working in conjunction with my colleagues, I have been able to focus on the development agenda, not the political agenda,” he said.
Kenyatta urged leaders across the political divide to unite and work together for Kenya to achieve its goal of becoming a middle-income country by 2030.
He emphasized that the whole essence of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) was to bring the country together and consolidate national unity.
He cautioned against endless politics at the expense of development saying political bickering and selfish pursuits by leaders were holding the country back.
“Rather than engaging in endless political fights, let’s work together. If we do that, we will be able to become a truly middle-income country by 2030,” Kenyatta said.
