Why Ruto Allies Developed Cold Feet on Interfering With Uhuru's Pension, As Told By Jubilee Official

A senior Jubilee party official had given his reason's why he feels William Ruto's allies went silent on their plan to interfere with Uhuru Kenyatta's pension. Just weeks ago, especially after Uhuru appeared in roadside stop with Raila, the lawmakers threatened that they would act if the former president continued politicking. Among the threats they issued against the Former President was the recall from his Peace keeping envoy mission job, and also denying him some of the entitlements in his pension. But now that whole conversation seems to have died down.

The official says that the Kenya Kwanza team retreated from their threats after realizing that teh former head of state was not desperate and would not be coerced into submitting to their demand's. They seemed to have thought that telling Uhuru to stop politicking would make him go silent but that has not happened. Senator Samson Cherargei was among those who spearheaded that conversation.

However for Mr Kimani Ichungwah, he says that the Kenya Kwanza administration will not engage in political pettiness like the former administration. He adds that they will respect the former President and focus on the economy. Getting the economy back on it's feet to work for the majority of Kenyans is their primary focus at this point.

For Nyaribari Chache's Zaheer Jhanda, he adds that they are okay with Mr Uhuru Kenyatta joining hand's with opposition chief Raila Odinga in oversighting the Kenya Kwanza administration.

For now, all eyes are on Uhuru as he marks his sixth month out of office as President tomorrow. The law requires him to step down and resign from his party position. He is still the Jubilee party leader and Azimio Council chairman. Registrar of Political Parties Ms Nderitu said that she had not received any communication regarding the President stepping down from any of those aforementioned post's. We wait to see.
