Among the retired presidents in Kenya no one ever supported his deputy for the quest to succeed them.
When Mzee Jomo Kenyatta died, late Mzee moi assumed office and throughout his tenure he was served with 4 vice presidents.
Wen his tenure came to an end in the year 2002 he didn't support his deputy but rather opted for younger Uhuru Kenyatta.
Younger Uhuru lost to Mzee Kibaki and he was also served by more than 2 vice presidents in his 10 year tenure in office.
In 2013 wen he was exiting from power he didn't support his vice by then kalonzo Musyoka who was in the race to succeed him.
Kalonzo lost to Uhuru Kenyatta who later secured his seat in the 2017 general elections.
Uhuru Kenyatta has been served by Deputy president William for his two terms. Mr Ruto has shown interests in succeeding his boss.
Wen the duo were campaigning during the 2017 elections,they promised their electorates that Uhuru will rule for 10 years and Ruto for 10 years.
From the current state of the country,the president and his deputy are not reading from the same script.
Political analysts alleges that the president is grooming the opposition leader to succeed him.
In United States of America the case was different as Obama supported his vice president for his presidency.
Wen Obama assumed office, he was served by Joe Biden as his vice president. The duo worked together and we're both democrats.
Wen Biden's came, Obama fully supported Joe fully and eventually he won the elections against the incumbent Donald trump.
If president uhuru Kenyatta could change his tune them he will join the likes of Obama who supported Their deputies.
