President Uhuru Kenyatta Issues a Directive That Might Affect Deputy President William Ruto

President Uhuru Kenyatta has issued an order that will affect the members of his cabinet and the entire Executive arm of the ruling government.

Deputy president William Ruto might end up being affected by the recent orders since he is part of the Executive and the cabinet by the virtue of being the Deputy President of the country.

"PRESIDENT KENYATTA orders entire cabinet and Executive to take the Covid-19 vaccine jab, Chief Of Staff Nzioka Waita confirms."

This comes at a time when the deputy president William Ruto disclosed why he had not yet taken the Covid-19 Vaccine despite several of his allies having taken the vaccine.

Speaking on Thursday, the DP said they agreed as Cabinet that frontline workers would be the first to receive the jab, and he is not among them.

"We decided as Cabinet to prioritize frontline workers and those who have a higher exposure to Covid-19 and that's why we started with doctors, nurses, police and the army and then students, and that is the procedure we are following," said William Ruto.

The deputy president dispelled fears about the vaccine, urging Kenyans to come out and take the jab when the opportunity comes and most especially those being targeted by the government.

President Uhuru Kenyatta's latest directive might make deputy president William Ruto go ahead and apply to be vaccinated despite his boss president Uhuru Kenyatta has not taken the jab.
