Ruto Revives Attacks on Uhuru Two Days After Winning, Announces The Plan

President-elect William Ruto on Wednesday threw another shade at his predecessor Uhuru Kenyatta, who should be retiring soon.

Ruto is not new to indirect and direct shots at the outgoing Head of State, and has been questioning among others, his mode of operation at the helm.

On Wednesday, he lashed out at Uhuru for ruling through intimidation and threats, terming this one of the things his rule plans to bring to an end.

Ruto said that contrary to now where people are being prevented from doing specific things, like expressing themselves, it will be different under him.

"I want to promise that our administration will have nothing to do with blackmail, the threats we have seen, the fear being sold around the country that you cannot talk to this or that person because they don't share your political views," he is quoted by The Star.

He made the remarks while meeting elected leaders allied to his Kenya Kwanza alliance in Karen, Nairobi.

He assured Kenyans of their rights and freedoms, stating that with him in power, all their democratic rights will be restored and given back.

"I want to tell the people of Kenya we are having our democratic country back and everybody can speak to everybody about everything in every way they want and nobody is going to victimise them. We live in a democratic country and that is how it should be," he stated.

This comes amid earlier fears that Ruto would embark on dealing with Uhuru for trying to block his presidency and victimising his allies.
