It has now emerged President Uhuru Kenyatta's cabinet is rocked with tension and suspicion, after reports that a number of members are shifting their loyalty to deputy president William Ruto.
According to the Nation publication, Cabinet members are now trading on eggshells, being careful on whom they speak to or they be deemed Ruto loyalists.
"It’s so difficult in the Cabinet. We live suspicious of each other lest you speak out of turn,” a Cabinet Secretary, who sought anonymity said.
According to the CS who spoke in confidence, Indeed a number of Cabinet Secretaries are supporting Ruto, because they are planning their futures after the current government exits office.
“Definitely. But also more because a majority of them are planning for the next dispensation. And they think [the] DP is far ahead of any other person.” the CS said.
The Cabinet Secretary also revealed a number of his colleagues are very careful with whom they meet in their offices, lest it is said they met the DP's emissaries.
