Nakuru Gubernatorial Aspirant Weighs in on Uhuru & Ruto's Sitting Position During Prayer Breakfast

On Thursday, during the 19th National Prayer Breakfast that took place at Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi, President Uhuru Kenyatta,and his deputy William Ruto sat at different tables, a move that has attracted discussion across the political space.

In the past, Uhuru and Ruto have been sharing tables in such events, but on Thursday each had their own tables, with Uhuru sitting alongside with CJ Martha Koome and the Attorney General Paul Kariuki, while Ruto sat with Speakers Justin Muturi and Ken Lusaka.

With some Kenyans arguing that there is nothing much to talk about the sitting arrangement since the duo shook hands, Nakuru County independent candidate Stanley Karanja argues that the move has been driven due to the upcoming polls.

In his interview with TV 47, Karanja claimed that it is time that the president who is now in his last days in office emerge as a person who is neutral on the polls, adding that matters of security is also a matter of concern for the two key leaders.

"We should stop reading so much on how the two sat today, in fact according to security studies, they should not stay in one room, or fly in the same plane, because if they do and something happens, what next? He posed.

He went on to say, "It is also good that we are in the electioneering period, and it should not be seen who is close to the president or who is doing what with the president."
