"Ati mnarecord Ruto alimskuma president Uhuru sijui namna gani, kwani mlitaka President Uhuru awache hiyo kiti ambayo sisi tuliamka saa kumi asubuhi kumchagua ili awe Rais? Awache kiti tulikuwa tumemtafutia, awachie mtu wa kitendawili? Atakama nilimlazimisha awe Rais, iko makosa?" Ruto revealed.
(The words in english loosely translate to," They recorded me saying i forced Uhuru to be president? Did you want me to let Uhuru to let the seat to go just like that? A seat that we all woke up at five in the morning to go vote for uhuru to be president.To just let the seat to go like that to the Kitendawili guy.Even if i forced Uhuru to be president there was no mistake)
President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Samoei Ruto are no longer bossom buddies.Uhuru Kenyatta is the national chairman for Azimio One Kenya alliance that supports Ruto's opponent Raila Odinga while Ruto is vying for the presidency thrrought the Kenya Kwanza alliance.
