After the ouster of parties allied to DP William Ruto from major positions in the Jubilee party, the Deputy President is said to have convened a crisis meeting.
The Standard reported that in the meeting, Ruto urged his followers to stay put and let their rivals have a field day. He said that it was critical for them to sit back and strategise.
“In war, you don’t show your enemies all the arsenal; you will lose. You must retreat and study how far they can go and strategize on how to counter,” a source in attendance quoted the DP.
“This is just the beginning. It’s too early for them to celebrate,” stated Ruto during the highly guarded meeting according to the publication.
The Director of information at the office of the president has however denied that there was a meeting.
In the meeting, the DP said that he was focusing on his constitutional duties and that he was not going to engage in a fight with the president.
Ruto’s allies have been facing the axe with Senator Kipchumba Murkomen losing his role as the Senate majority leader and Susan Kihika being ousted from her role as the majority whip.
It has been intimated that Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki, National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and the house’s Majority Whip Benjamin Washiali might be the next victims to be ousted from their roles due to their inclination towards DP.
