Deputy President William Ruto on Tuesday, February 9 clashed with Agriculture CS Peter Munya during a burial ceremony in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s backyard of Gatundu, Kiambu County.
It all began with the DP’s speech to Mt Kenya leaders and residents to desist from tying down President Kenyatta with regional politics.
Ruto argued that Uhuru was the President of the whole country and claimed that he had campaigned for the Head of State more than any other leader had in past.
“The president is a leader of the whole country. I beg you as citizens and leaders of Mt Kenya, do not take the president away from us.
“If you say the president is the leader of Mt Kenya, who will be the president of the rest of the country. We voted for him and we love him,” stated the DP.
In a rare development, CS Munya publicly answered the DP and told him off while delivering a condolence speech on behalf of the President.
“We have never claimed the President serves Mt Kenya Region alone. The President is the leader of the whole country. Just the way he carries development projects across the country, he also develops Mt Kenya region” Munya stated.
