The deputy president William Ruto will be making this first stab at the presidency in the upcoming general election when over 20 million kenyans will be going to the ballot.
The DP has been trending lately over his remarks that he pushed Uhuru to vie for presidency.
Ruto was the topic of discussion on Tuesday morning whereby his former close ally and UDA Vice chairman Kipruto Arap kirwa asked the president and his deputy to tone down their exchanges as they are symbols of national unity.
Speaking to KTN news, kirwa said the two leaders were good friends especially when they were facing ICC charges but their friendship died soon afterwards.
With himself having decamped from Kenya kwanza side, kirwa described Ruto as a man who believes in himself too much and can't take anybody's opinion.
"The problem with Ruto is that he believes in himself too much, he doesn't share opinion with anyone; this is a precipitation of dictatorship. I am not saying he is a dictator though". He told KTN news.
He however said the DP is a strategic politician who in 2013 knew he wasn't ready to be president and therefore decided to back either Mudavadi or Uhuru inorder to build the momentum.
