Deputy President William Ruto has been handed a major reprieve amid concerns by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp that President Uhuru Kenyatta may fail to hand over power to him should he win the August 9 general elections.
In an interview with a local TV station, Jubilee party Vice-chair David Murathe has finally set the record straight on the succession matter and has assured the rival camp that there was no need to panic.
According to Murathe, President Uhuru Kenyatta Plans to hand over the instruments of power to Kenya Kwanza should they win the polls since he is constitutionally required to hand over to the winner.
He downplayed claims that the Head of State planned to hang around after the August 9 general elections not unless there was a runoff that's when he will have to stick
Mr. Murathe who is a fierce critic of the Deputy President William Ruto assured that the elections will be decisive and there would be no need for a runoff in the forthcoming polls whether people go to the Supreme court and that Uhuru would gracefully handover power.
