Jubilee aspirant in Kigumo constituency Member of Parliament seat in 2022 general election Zack Kinuthia has now admitted president Uhuru Kenyatta's weakness.
While appearing on K24 TV Live on Tuesday morning, Kinuthia argued that Uhuru's undoing was him being an individual with a nice man who entertain a co-worker who deserved ill-treatment because of his alleged character. In reference to deputy president Dr William Ruto, he claimed that the individual had become too bossy instead of being humble and loyal to his boss.
"One of the greatest weaknesses of President Uhuru is that he was a good man to people who deserved nothing but cruelty," said Kinuthia.
He noted that the DP should have been contained when he started being the country's second in command because he had overstepped his mandate because of his ambitions.
This comes as DP Ruto engages in name calling and tirades with his boss Uhuru over lapses in government, their fallout and 2022 succession politics. The two, who were once great friends are now sworn enemies who do not see eye-to-eye.
Things were still good between the two during their first term stint. They operated well and coordinately between 2013 and 2017. Infact the Head of State promised to rally behind his deputy's 2022 presidential bid. They used to launch development projects and preside over public functions. One would have thought that they would never part ways.
However, things went wrong when Uhuru shook hands with his 2017 presidential opponent and had a truce. The resolved to work together and in the process, DP Ruto was gradually isolated from government.
Uhuru has announced that he would support Raila's presidential bid, a move which contradicts his past pledge.
