Deputy President William Ruto has said he has agreed to support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s directives in order to realise Jubilee government’s aspirations.
Ruto who has evidently been sidelined in Uhuru’s government for the better part of Jubilee’s second term in office said he has reached an agreement with the head of state and will be endorsing all his directives going forward.
Speaking to Citizen TV on Thursday, August 27, the DP said his only interest was doing everything possible to ensure Jubilee government realises its dreams and aspirations as envisioned.
Although he noted the president had changed the way he was running the government compared to how he did during Jubilee’s first term in office, Ruto said he will continue to support him as his principal assistant.
“We have agreed with the presiden t that the style of leadership he wants is what we will follow. In the first term I had more responsibilities, pushing for construction of roads, electricity, technical training colleges and all the projects. In second term, the president decided to work differently and that is what we will follow…the way the president wants is the way were will work,” he said
The second in command acknowledged the existence of administrative challenges in his office but said he will not quit but will instead confront and conquer them.
“Challenges are there but as leaders, we are there to solve challenges so will continue working together to ensure we realise the legacy we envisioned,” said the DP.
Asked whether he was considering to quit, Ruto said if things will continue to get worse then he will be obliged to explore other political alternatives.
“We will cross that bridge when we reach there but If it becomes hopeless and Jubilee is hijacked by the brokers, then waswahili wanasema Kuvunjika kwa mwiko sio mwisho wa kupika ( (Breaking cooking stick is not the end of the cooking process,”
