Just minutes after Uhuru released a powerful controversial statement that is believed to be ment for his deputy, William Ruto, A 1966 resignation message has resurfaced online showing The Late Oginga Odinga tendering his resignation to the then president, Jomo Kenyatta.
In his statement today, Uhuru said that if Ruto is not happy in His government, then he was free to step aside and allow those who want to move on to do so.
His statement attracted mixed resctions on social media and Kenyans have stormed Twitter with the hash tag that Ruto Should now resign.
They believe That Ruto Should use the same format that Raila Odinga's father used when he felt that Mr Jomo Kenyatta was not considering him as the deputy.
On the letter dated April 14th 1966, Mr Oginga said this;
"Dear Mr president, You have not given any consideration to me as your number 2 in state matters. I have a conscience and this in fact, does prick me when I earn public noney but with no job to do. I consider this a waste of public money and I am worried lest the future generation questions my sincerity when they would learn that I allowed myself to hold a sinecure post in the midst of poverty and misery in our country. With this realization, I cannot continue to hold this position any longer and I hereby tender my resignation"
La Queen: This is what Jaramogi Oginga Odinga did when he wws tired with the Kenyatta government. Alileft group. That's what statesmen do. #Rutonowresign.
