Saturday, July 2, the Head of State made a snide remark about Ruto and the Kenya Kwanza manifesto, which he released earlier this month.
He argued that Ruto and his friends are acting irresponsibly by bemoaning the Jubilee government while they have been a part of it for nearly a decade.
Instead of working for the people of Kenya while still in government, the new president immediately began campaigning, making promises about the future rather than focusing on the present, he claimed.
"I am saddened by the fact that so many individuals are merely talking when they have been given a job. When they were there, they were yelling and making a lot of noise, but why didn't they do that while they were there?" Uhuru took a stance.
"There is a lot of noise in your thoughts right now because of this plan to make noise. (CS Peter) Munya has been there for three years and he has made progress; they were there for eight years and did nothing, "Uhuru chimed in with his perspective.
At one point, Ruto claimed that their disagreement was caused by Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate of Azimio la Umoja. The President shot back at Ruto. When the President made a veiled attack, he said that when a spouse quits, you should look for another one instead of whining constantly.
"To be clear, I'm not coercing anyone into doing anything. My heart is full of gratitude for all of the people who have helped me and for the way we have collaborated. Building a nation requires moving forward rather than dwelling on the past, "According to the president,
"This individual has taken my wife from me every time you look back and regret it. Do not stay with him if he has taken your wife "The audience erupted in laughter as he clarified in Swahili.
President Kibaki wondered aloud why he had failed to deliver on the promises he made to Kenyans during their 2013 and 2017 campaigns.
DP's announcement came just two days after this. International election observers received a report from Ruto alleging that Uhuru was in charge of the National Police Service (NPS).
During a meeting with election monitors on Thursday, June 30, Ruto said that the police force was solely under the control of the President, and he expressed concerns about their usage on election day, August 9.
Because Uhuru serves as a councillor for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party, he said, he would make choices in favour of that party.
