The DP was allegedly asking his Kalenjins supporters to support and vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta so that he, Ruto would get a chance of running the government because the DP believed Uhuru is a 'mlevi", who would not run the government.
According to Jubilee Party Vice Chair David Murathe, the intelligence agents who heard DP Ruto describe Uhuru as a drunkard took the matter to the President.
Murathe believes the act of backbiting the President could have triggered their fallout with DP Ruto.
Murathe alleged so while appearing on a local media house on Monday
“There is a day Ruto spoke in his native language and told his supporters to vote for Uhuru because as he drinks, I will be running the government," Murathe claimed as reported by Kenyans.co.ke
Murathe noted President Uhuru has a way of getting to know some of the things said behind the curtains.
“It was during the funeral of the late Mark Too. The government always has a way of knowing some of these things. I suspect that was one of the reasons Uhuru decided to sideline Ruto was this statement,” he added.
