When Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto stood on the same stage for the first time in months, Kenyatta ignored Ruto's pleas for political unity.
Their deteriorating relationship culminated in their last face-to-face meeting on February 25 during a Cabinet meeting at State House in Nairobi.
At the National Prayer Breakfast in Nairobi, Ruto urged the country's political leaders to work together on important national problems including the effort to alter the Constitution.
Uhuru's dismissal of their pleas for help was a glaring indication of their fundamental incompatibility with one another.
In light of the High Court's decision to halt the BBI process, which effectively ended Uhuru and Raila Odinga's three-year effort to rewrite the Constitution, Ruto and his supporters have expressed widespread joy.
Later on the DP urged leaders to heed the words of retired Citam Bishop David Oginde, who said they should cease the polarizing BBI reggae and Tangatanga politics.
According to Ruto, Fred Matiang'i had usurped his responsibilities and pushed him out of the spotlight.
