Powerful Nominated TNA senator Paul Njoroge has hinted that the Uhuru Kitchen cabinet (read Mt Kenya Mafia/top statehouse operatives) are at crossroads to retain DP Ruto as president Uhuru’s running-mate in the 2017 general election.
The senator who was nominated on account of his back stage role in the Jubilee 2013 campaigns (super strategist) was very categorical that the debate among Statehouse operatives is whether DP Ruto is FIT to be Uhuru’s running mate.
Hon Njoroge are petitioned the DP to stop talking about 2022. The seemingly aggrieved senator further argued that , instead of Ruto dragging us to 2022 conversation he should start asking himself if he is fit to be Uhuru Kenyatta’s running mate 2017.
“I think he should be fighting first to retain runningmate position” Hon Njoroge told local media.
It is an open secret that DP Ruto owes his position to his friendship with the president BUT those who surround Uhuru are not so keen on him. Matters were made worse when president Obama lectured Uhuru on what was said as DP Ruto’s high handedness in dealing with important national issues.
It is not clear if President Obama’s rant got anything with Senator Njoroge’s outbursts or it is purely a mt Kenya issue.
