Uhuru-Ruto Fight Takes Another Gear as Ruto's Brigade is Chased Away From Statehouse

President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya has tightened his grip on the ruling party and legislature as he forges new partnerships and pushes out old ones.

President Kenyatta's relationship with his deputy and future successor, William Ruto, took a turn in early 2018, when the latter struck a deal with opposition leader Raila Odinga, as he neared the conclusion of his second and last term.

According to the STAR, Dr. William Ruto, Kenya's vice president, and Uhuru Kenyatta's relationship has hit the rock bottom . Ruto's guards have been booted out of Uhuru Kenyatta's squad, bringing the partnership to a halt.

Prior to the debacle and inauguration of the Handshake, the presidential guards had been working as a team, with the two abs sharing their families' responsibilities. However, things appear to be worse, as the president has chosen to operate solely with his bodyguards, excluding Ruto's.

William Ruto differed with the president due to the proposed Building Bridges Initiative. It was transformed from a handshake into bringing Kenyans together, a thing that deputy President wasn't getting any of it.
