It seems the war of words between TNA and URP is yet again shaping up after Deputy President William Ruto revealed on national TV that President Uhuru was “misadvised” over recent parastatal appointments.
TNA supporters now claim the Deputy president is projecting a “Mr Clean” image while at the same time depicting his boss as a man surrounded with bureaucracy quacks Â who ‘misadvise’ him on everything.
It goes back to Westgate. To date, Ruto handlers believe the President and his henchmen bungled the post-terror attack operation. While Uhuru maintained the KDF stance that no soldier looted in Westgate, Ruto, while being interviewed by CNN, claimed that in deed, soldiers MAY have looted and that the government will hold the military accountable.
More recently on the standard railway gauge, Ruto wrote to the presidency to clear the corruption allegations on the tender process. However, he later accompanied the president to the launch of the multi-billion railway line whose tendering processes and costs is steeped in what Nairobi Law Monthly claimed may be the biggest rip-off of taxpayers money by any government since independence.
Enter the parastatals fallout and the Deputy President was again at it, claiming it is the ‘president’ who was misled into making the appointments. One wonders, as the deputy president, what role exactly does Ruto play? Can President Uhuru be making these blunders (appointments) without the input of Ruto?
Here is one TNA pro-Uhuru chap not amused by Bill’s ‘Mr clean’ politics:
By publicly saying that President Uhuru Kenyatta was mis-advised on legality of recent appointments, Deputy President William Samoei Ruto acted in a manner that suggests ”it’s not us, it’s the president” attitude. He literally ran away from the blame and transfered it to the president and ran away from the blame. He portrayed a Mr. Clean picture for himself. Deputy president failed to exercise wisdom.Â Ruto could have done better by shielding the president if they truly mean it when they tell Kenyans they are unseperable. He could have responded in a manner to suggest that, the decision they made together with the president could have been done better and confidently apologise on behalf of himself and the president and promise to follow the law in the appointments. Unless the president made the decision with no Ruto which i highly doubt. Or else defend the legality of the appointment by quoting relevant law that supported their appointment. If Kenyans disagree with their ”legal thinking”, they go to court for arbitration. Otherwise, Ruto created loopholes for political debates of alleged division in the Jubilee Administration. He gave Alfred Keter a boost.Â It is high time the duo come into realisation that enemies of Jubilee are eagerly waiting for the collapse of Jubilee Unity.Â Only those with critical analytical skills will critically understand my opinion above.
