Miguna's Advice To DP Ruto On How To Deal With Uhuru
Jun. 11, 2019
President Uhuru Kenyatta will not keep his alleged pledge to back his deputy William Ruto upon his retirement in 2022, lawyer and author Miguna Miguna has observed.
Miguna noted it was now clear Uhuru had 'betrayed' his principal assistant, noting Ruto was all alone in his bid to become Kenya's fifth president.
Reacting to allegations that State House operatives were using Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho to scuttle the DP's bid, Miguna adviced Ruto to be bold and demand for his space in the Jubilee party.
There have been media reports that the DP confronted Kibicho recently at the JKIA, demanding answers why he (Kibicho) was allegedly ordering security officers to keep off his functions across the country.
Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro over the weekend also claimed the powerful PS was sponsoring anti-Ruto campaigns in the Mount Kenya region.
In a tweet on Sunday, the exiled lawyer said Ruto, who was elected by Kenyans, should not fear Kibicho, who he said was hand-picked by the President, just like other senior government officials.
He urged Ruto to confront Uhuru over Kibicho's suspect mission, failure to which his (Ruto) ambition will be in jeopardy.
"Karanja Kibicho is nothing but a bureaucrat Uhuru Kenyatta hand-picked just as he hand-picked Fred Matiangi (Interior CS), George Kihalang’wa (Immigration PS), George Kinoti (DCI) and Noordin Haji (DPP). William Ruto should face his betrayer Uhuru Kenyatta head-on. Cowardice will fail him as it has failed Raila Odinga," he posted.
Miguna mentioned Raila in an apparent reference to his March 9 handshake with Uhuru.
