Ruto is currently involved in a fight with majority of the leading political figures, including President Uhuru Kenyatta, whom he has since fallen out with.
Lately, he has been accusing Uhuru of abandoning the vows he gave to Kenyans and instead focusing on the constitutional amendment push, after being influenced by his current closest ally; ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Already, Uhuru, who is also uncomfortable with Ruto's attacks, has teamed up with all the other big political players in what is seen as an attempt to isolate the DP and weaken his 2022 presidential candidature.
Kathiani MP Robert Mbui says that the union against Ruto has been caused by his attacks on other leaders, which, according to him, has now backfired on the DP.
“Ruto has been reckless in his statements and has allowed his confidants to attack the President in his presence without rebuking them and, as you can see, that has backfired on him,” the MP, an ally of Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, one of the top leaders working with Uhuru, told the Star newspaper.
Ford Kenya Secretary General Eseli Simiyu warned Ruto to prepare for the worst after "rattling the snake" by attacking families of other leaders; that of Uhuru, Raila and KANU leader Gideon Moi, members of the 6-man alliance, who the DP and his allies have been referring to as the dynasties out to oppress Kenyans.
"The DP should blame himself for firing up a class war narrative that from a distance anyone can conclude is incitement against some families in this country," the Tongaren lawmaker told the paper.
Ruto has, however, denied claims of igniting a class war narrative through his 'Hustler versus Dynasties' narrative, criticizing those opposed to it.
The other leader working with Uhuru and who has also been bashing Ruto is ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.
