The Mathira member of parliament has weighed in on the responsibility that Ruto has for the failures of the governing Jubilee party. Speaking on Thursday on the Crossfire program that airs on the Standard Media Group-owned Kenya Television Network (KTN), the outspoken legislator said that the country's second in command would only take responsibility for the promises that were made in the first term of the Jubilee government.

"The deputy president will take responsibility for promises made during the first term, " the Mathira member of parliament said in an interview on the Kenya Television Network on Thursday.

"That was the period when there was tranquility in government and the president and his deputy were in good terms. Raila Odinga came in the second term and disrupted that good relationship and ensured that William Ruto was marginalised. How can he take responsibility for promises made in the second term when he has been pushed to the sidelines?"

The deputy president Dr William Ruto has called on the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader and former prime minister Raila Odinga to take responsibility for the failures of the government. He has claimed that the handshake and the Building Bridges Initiative have made it difficult for the government to deliver on its development agenda. Raila Odinga has hit back, saying that he does not have any responsibility for failures of the government as he is not a member of the government.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto have not been seeing eye to eye since the 2018 handshake. Ruto's allies accuse Raila of using the handshake to derail the deputy president's presidential ambitions. The Tangatanga brigade has been traversing the country calling on the people of Kenya to reject the Building Bridges Initiative.
